In this vlog, Susan Hopkins applies the Energy-Centred Teaching (ECT) model that she first developed with Dr. Stuart Shanker in 2017 to offer a fresh way of thinking about priorities for the start of the school year.
Susan outlines the four frames of ECT–protECT, connECT, collECT, and detECT– and shows how they can be applied to think about teacher-student and whole class relationship building.
Learn more about the ECT model in this new resource for teachers: Self-Reg Schools: A Handbook for Educators.
