As part of the Educational Reality Series,
George Phillip's educational program,
De-Stressing the Classroom, helps
increase staff effectiveness with
these three key components:
- reduce stress
- focus on tangible goals
- keep from doing something stupid
The program is a 90 minute presentation with
opportunities for concept application breakout work
that set a flexible time scale from 60 minutes to 3 hours.
The framework consists of integrating organizational systems designed to alleviate workload and associated stress, educational goals clarification exercises, and an overview of decision making guidelines along with 101 examples of bad educational practice and poor decision making.

B. Breakout: identifying common core values
The program outlined above is approximately 90 minutes. Takeaway materials include all references, support materials, and directions for follow up activities. These activities reinforce breakout sessions and help develop organizational plans to identify goals and to increase effectiveness and job satisfaction.
Modifications for a 60 minute program eliminate breakout activity
for a strictly lecture format.
A three hour program allows more time for a question and answer session. It integrates sessions for organizationally suited goals clarification and best practice identification that would normally occur post-presentation. It also includes discussion for extending and integrating these processes in the classroom.
