A Balancing Act: The Intersection Between Student Temperament and Your Classroom’s Ecology
Do some of your students jump from one activity to another while others are so persistent that they have a hard time transitioning? Do you like to introduce new activities into your lessons but find that some of your students are hesitant or resistant? Based on the research of Stella Chess and Alexander Thomas, there are nine innate temperament traits that can affect a child’s behavior in the classroom and in life. In this workshop you will learn what these temperaments are and the five components of classroom ecology that you can adjust to better support your students.
