Take Control Of The Noisy Class

noisyclassTake Control of the Noisy Class presents a COMPLETE, step-by-step, easy-to-follow system for managing extremely tough groups of students. From getting them settled quietly at the door to having ALL students willingly participating and working you’ll find the strategies WORK like magic.


  • How to prepare for the challenging class – the FIVE things you MUST do to prevent problems from occurring in your lesson.
  • Taking control at the door – What to do outside the classroom to ensure your students are in a state to actually LISTEN to instructions when they go in the room.
  • The perfect lesson start – Three very different styles of starting lessons without disruption.
  • How to maintain lesson flow and keep them on task – Once you’ve got their attention you need to keep it – just one disruption can turn the lesson to chaos with a difficult group. This is how to avoid it happening.
  • How to manage transitions with minimal disruption – transitions are mine fields if you don’t know how to manage them smoothly. Here’s a little tip that will give you total control during ANY transition.
  • How to get the support you need from senior staff – Get this wrong and you will come across weak and your reputation in the school will suffer. This is the right way to enlist support so that your status is actually enhanced.
  • Dealing with problems – Fast-acting, effective strategies for constant talking, lost/forgotten equipment, late arrivals, refusal to work, interruptions, rude comments, low level disruption, using mobile phones and many more.
  • Ending the lesson on a high – (And why this is more important than you probably realise). This one tip is the secret behind having students eager to come to your lessons. Unbelievably this is 100% possible with any group if you take the right steps.
  • The ‘Fresh Start Program’ – A step by step strategy for you to ‘start over’ with that particularly difficult, ‘impossible’ group who won’t do anything you ask.

What You Get:

  • Main Manual: Containing explanations for each strategy and the full Take Control of the Noisy Class Step-by-Step system
  • DVD: Containing video presentations to explain the main modules
  • CD: Containing resources and tools mentioned in the manual and video presentations

Teachers we have taught this system to in live workshops all over the world have reported dramatic and rapid transformations in the way challenging students respond to them and our Behaviour-Ology program contains everything you need to achieve similar results in your school or college.

Behaviour-Ology is packed with in-the-moment, step-by-step solutions to deal with the many classroom behaviour problems a teacher is likely to face but what makes this program totally different to other resources is that it also outlines a very effective methodology for applying these solutions – the Needs Focused Approach.

Cooperative & Active Learning In Lessons


The benefits of cooperative and active learning are many; from promoting and teaching appropriate social skills , managing conflict, and improving self esteem through to increased motivation levels, eager participation, deeper understanding and higher student achievement. As an approach to teaching and learning it takes some beating and is widely regarded as one of the greatest educational innovations for the modern classroom.

Our activity-packed resource, Cooperative & Active Learning In Lessons, provides teachers with everything they need to bring the power of cooperative learning and kinaesthetic activity to every lesson.


  • How to get students working together cooperatively & collaboratively (Hint: this is one of the EASIEST ways to reduce behaviour problems and improve participation – even bored, switched off students get a huge kick from working like this).
  • How to put more ACTIVITY in your lessons – you’ve no-doubt heard that a large proportion of ‘troublesome’ students tend to be kinaesthetic learners. If you try and teach these students using didactic, lecture-style methods they will HATE it! One way to make subjects accessible and appealing to these students is to include ’hands-on’ learning tasks – to get them on their feet and ‘doing’ stuff.
  • How to make subject content STICK – It’s obvious, when students are truly engaged in the learning process there is much more chance that the information you give them will actually be remembered.
  • How to help students develop thinking skills such as analysis, problem solving, and evaluation though fun, practical methods which help them see the relevance and benefit in learning
  • A unique collection of highly engaging activities frameworks, templates and tools to give you countless ways to INVOLVE all your students in fun, interactive ways they will LOVE.

Motivate The Unmotivated

motivate the unmotivatedHave you noticed that the traditional methods for motivating students rarely seem to work?

Stickers, merit marks, reward charts, praise assemblies, certificates etc. are used in almost every school all over the world and yet most of us STILL struggle to get students involved in lessons. And punishments are equally ineffective – you give detention after detention but students STILL don’t work any harder.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying carrots and sticks never work; just that they rarely work – and certainly not for long periods. Students HATE being controlled and rewards and punishments are both just sides of the same coin – they are both attempts to coerce or force them in to doing something or behaving in a certain way.

Real motivation doesn’t work like that; you can’t FORCE people to be motivated. You can’t MAKE them want to work.

If you want to get more of your students engaged and taking part in lessons it’s time to forget trying to control them and instead create a situation where your they are naturally motivated, from within.


  • How to INVITE and STIMULATE students’ interest and get them to BUY IN to a lesson topic form the start of the lesson. Hint: this is much better than trying to FORCE them to learn and it works every time!
  • Interactive discussion formats – even switched-off students can’t resist getting involved in these!
  • Hundreds of ideas for adapting lesson content for KINESTHETIC learners and making lessons ACTIVE
  • Little-known ‘STUDENT INVOLVERS’ to ensure active participation during Q and A and discussions
  • Member-created resource area – HUNDREDS of ready-made, time-served engaging activities from the ‘chalk face’, guaranteed to work wonders in today’s TOUGHEST classrooms

Perfect for… Students who REFUSE to work, never get their work finished, disrupt other class members, show NO INTEREST in learning and a host of other classroom motivation problems.

What You Get:

  • Strategy-packed tutorial – Filled with incredibly effective techniques for stimulating your students’ natural, internal motivation.
  • Take-Action Assignments & Real-life Case Study Scenarios
  • Motivation Tracking Sheet
  • Resource CD: Desktop reminders and checklists – handy reminders of the key strategies in editable format

Team Makertm

team480x480 In the Needs Focused™ approach we explain the huge benefits to be had by splitting your class into Cooperative Learning Teams and how DIVERSE GROUPS are the very best group formation you can use because they encourage and facilitate peer tutoring. They also eliminate problems associated with troublesome students sitting together.

However, creating diverse groups can be tedious and time-consuming because you have to ‘juggle’ variables such as sex of the students, ability levels and personality matches. Little wonder that most teachers opt for random grouping methods to save time, only to find that students in random groups often either mess around or cause trouble
