In this month’s vlog post for Pavilion ELT, Damien Herlihy continues his professional development series for 2021. You can see the introduction to the series here and look back to episode 2 on giving instructions in the English language classroom and to episode 3 on the magic of storytelling.

In this episode, he focuses on classroom management in the classroom. Good classroom management doesn’t just happen during the class but before and after as well. Find out how to get keep your classes on track and get the most value out of your lessons.
