TEACH’s emphasis on nonverbal classroom management is grounded in the corporate educational model developed by Michael Grinder, an author and renowned expert in nonverbal communication. His work includes models of professional growth for educators, strategies for nonverbal communication, and tools for building a culture of influence, wherein educators influence student behavior through a range of nonverbal strategies, rather than operating from a position of power. This improved dynamic fosters communication between educators and students, creating classrooms with clear expectations for students and a greater focus on learning.
Effectively employing TEACH strategies achieves the following results:
- Reduces time on classroom management, increasing time for curriculum;
- Increases educator’s repertoire of nonverbal strategies, allowing teachers to operate from influence as often as possible, with fewer displays of power;
- Creates educational climates committed to ongoing professional development, reversing the trend of overtraining and under-implementing. Coaches stay with teachers throughout the year, giving teachers the opportunity to implement and practice their new skills.
Why Nonverbal Classroom Management?
Research shows that over 80% of communication is nonverbal. TEACH’s workshops for educators focus on how to systematically and effectively use eye contact, voice patterns and body language.
Through the use of TEACH strategies, educators can create educational environments that nourish positive teacher-student relationships — the single most powerful leverage point in education — which leads to increased student achievement.
Expected outcomes include fewer disciplinary incidents, improved student attendance, higher student grades, higher staff morale and a lower level of staff burnout.
Teachers who utilize the full range of nonverbal management skills are able to reinforce consistent and fair parameters while preserving their relationships with each student, regardless of unique learning styles or cultural backgrounds.
Who will benefit from TEACH’s coaching and training program?
- Teachers at All Levels. The program is useful whether you are teaching in K-12 or adult education.
- Anyone Who Works with Children. The principles of nonverbal management can help parents – and anyone who works with children – to maintain positive relationships while respectfully adhering to high standards for behavior.
- Individual Schools. TEACH’s program can be implemented in classrooms throughout campus, creating a school culture that emphasizes effective communication, leadership and inclusion.
- Staff Seeking Development. Research shows that when school districts have a common focus for their teachers’ professional development, the reinforcement of that focus encourages the teachers to create new habits.
- Administrators. TEACH offers a leadership development program, Leadership Learning Labs (LLL), enabling principals to participate in a structured learning and development program aligned with the work and program their campus staff are simultaneously completing.
TEACH equips school staff with de-escalation techniques, resulting in a reduction in suspension rates.
TEACH helps teachers build relationships with students based on influence versus power.
TEACH provides educators with tools to create calm, conflict-free classrooms.
