7. The cover lesson survival guide: How to calm the chaos and get through the day in one piece.

So many classroom management strategies rely on a foundation of not only relationships and rapport, but solid routines and a whole lot of consistency to be effective. But what if you have absolutely no opportunity to do this because you have either chosen the path of, or are currently in the role of, a casual / supply / substitute teacher (whatever you call it in your patch of the world)!  I know how incredibly hard it can be teaching one of these lessons, you don’t even know their names! Let alone having the time to really build any kind of meaningful relationship.. That luxury of developing consistent routines? Nope not that either!!  Now sometimes this is totally fine. Sometimes you might walk into a classroom and the students are really cool, calm and collected and are ready to just crack on with whatever cover work has been left with you. But you and me both know that that is rarely the case. This episode is your survival guide! It will step you through how to build your skills, and your confidence walking into a classroom of students who don’t know you from a bar of soap, and get through that day in one piece (even maybe have FUN in the process!)
