Please stop that friggin SHOUTING - IT'S HARD ON THE EYES!!
I'ts not a matter of filling in the blanks, Jon. What you are describing is classroom management, and specifically, the way you describe it is VERY teacher-centered.
The name of the game now is STUDENT centered, and these techniques are really lacking in many courses. Granted, the things you describe WILL be necessary in order to be an effective teacher, but in SMALL doses. I would suggest that if that is the course aim (to manage a class in the manner you describe) it would take about 4 weeks. To learn to gie control over o the students would probably take much longer, especially since one needs an (some)understanding of the underlying concepts (theory, if you prefer) in order to really understand WHY they are doing what they are doing.
It's a little too complicated to describe here (= I'm too lazy). Knowledge of theories of learning will help one understand the reasoning behind what they are doing. Teachers who can entertain and keep a class rolling are a dime a dozen.
