)-- It’s the beginning the school year and a room full of students is looking up at you, their new teacher, expectantly. Looking around the room you worry, will this be a peaceful class, or one fraught with conflict? As a teacher, you learn quickly to expect any and every possibility. Why do some classes and students just click with you when others really don’t?
By exploring personal psychology and its effect in the foreign language classroom, this book tackles the seemingly impossible task of creating harmony in even the most dysfunctional of classrooms. Analyzing the different MBTI personality types of Carl Jung, the authors provide teachers with steps they can take, based on their personality types, to sidestep conflict before it begins and create a productive, healthy learning environment for their students.
With an emphasis on how the personality types work together in the foreign language classroom, this book provides readers with examples of 16 different teacher-student group dynamics. These examples demonstrate that, while every classroom is different, with an understanding of personality type, teachers can learn to accommodate all students.
This invaluable guide is a must-read for foreign language teachers and can be used for faculty development as a whole.
