The Challenging Learner program contains four Modules (Workbooks and Skills Labs):
1.Introduction to the Challenging Learner
2.Getting Silent Learners to Respond
3. Channeling Difficult Learners' Energies and Emotions
4. Dealing with Special Learners
Interactive instructors, like all teachers, frequently discover difficult and challenging students in their classes. Instructors often ask:
"What if students are disruptive?"
"What about students who always arrive late?"
"What if the same person is always first to answer my questions?"
"What if my class gets out of control?"
"What if Im making a presentation and two students start to talk to each other?"
"What do I do when I ask a question and nobody answers?"
Using ESFs Challenging Learners materials, you will learn how to:
Transform negative situations into positive outcomes.
Discover why some learners act the way they do.
Deal with unacceptable classroom behavior.
Meet with the learner in a one-to-one, friendly, non-threatening setting.
Listen to and dialogue with the learner to uncover the causes of the learner's behavior.
Deal successfully with three categories of learners and twelve different personalities:
Silent learners: shy, inattentive, and non-responsive
Difficult learners: overeager, victim, resistant, highly-emotional, antagonistic, and out-of-control
Special learners: latecomers, prejudiced, distressed
"Channel the energy, interests, and ideas of each learner toward successful training for all."
