Transcript of Concious Classroom Management:

The Inner Authority Continuum (pg.21-23)
Teachers are the "authors" of their classroom.
Inner Authority is not being "aggressive", but having a relaxed state in whatever we do in the classroom
Inner authotiy affects everything in the classroom. It affects passing out papers to your peace of mind as a teacher.
Inner authority involves having a "no nonsense" firm and soft quality in voice and posture.
When and How to Apologize (pgs. 23-26)
Sometimes it's okay, even essential, that teachers apologize to students
Don't apologize unless actually sorry
Mrs. Meanswell vs. Mrs. Allgood

Clearly sincere
Apology affirms her caring
Mrs. Meanswell

Looks away
Statements sound like questions

Mechanical apology
Sincerity unclear
Apology questions her caring
Ms. Meanswell
"One of my students is constantly disrupting the class. What would you do in this situation?"
Ms. Allgood
"Well, my students know I will just not tolerate that kind of behavior."
Mrs. Allgood vs. Mrs. Meanswell
In Mrs. Meanswell's case the students get uncomfortable and squirmy as a reflection of her own discomfort and insecurity
Mrs. Allgood's apology results in a more silent and thoughtful response from the students
Apologizing internally
Apoligizing internally comes across like a "drive-by apology, never fully facing the students
2 "charges":
literally in charge
emotionally in charge
Ways to exercise the muscle of inner authority
*Assume the best

*Ask for help
*Holding our ground--experience
*Holding our ground--reflection
*Teaching procedures
*Getting Ready
*Consequences--Calling parents or guardians
Inner Apology (Ms. Meanswell) vs. Inner Authority (Ms.Allgood)
Inner Apology
preys on our insecurities.
It reflects a sense that our authority is questionable and that we are unsure about our decisions.
You are "apologizing" for being in charge.
Inner Authority
It facilitates "calm and harmony"
Students trust the teacher's judgement.
