The New Teacher's Survival Guide to Behaviour
- Sue Roffey - Honorary Associate Professor at University College London and the Universities of Exeter and Western Sydney
Standing in front of a class of students is challenging enough, but what if they just won't behave? This book will tell you how to start off on the right foot as a new teacher, and how to look after yourself as well as your classes. Chapters will help you to build up your confidence and awareness, develop positive relationships with your students, create supportive bonds with colleagues, and manage disruptive, distressed and defiant students calmly.
New to this Second Edition:
- The latest research developments in resilience, wellbeing, positive psychology and teacher-student relationships
- Reference to the Every Child Matters (ECM) agenda and Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) in the UK, and the Values Education and Safe Schools Framework in Australia
- The views, and voice, of the child
- Quotes and reflections from Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs)
- Consideration of the UK Professional Standards for teachers
- Interactive exercises
Suitable for new teachers in both primary and secondary schools working with children and young people aged 7 to 18, this book will also offer more experienced teachers a helpful reminder of what good behavior management looks like, and what it can achieve. It will help you get the best out of every child or young person in your classroom, and the best out of yourself as a teacher.
This book is very useful and offers simple practical advice. I have used this myself and have also used it to help my PGCE students.
A good book for the library and useful for PGCE but not for the reading list. We try to keep to just a few books for this.
An easy and quick read which provides useful tips for managing behaviour across the age phases. The case studies and reflection points are useful to share ideas and to discuss practice in a seminar. Thank you
This book will be added to the reading list for Unit 2 and Behaviour Management Optional Unitfor CTLLS and DTLLS.
A practical step by step guide of key themes to consider in managing behaviour and promoting positive behaviour.
The resources section at the back is also helpful, with useful websites. Reflective questions help to engage the reader and encourage the reader to consider their own practice.
Useful advice and guidance for trainee teacher to utilise. Good to see many scenarios to consider and points for reflection throughout. Will be invaluable.
I have used this book as a resource for staff development more so than ITE. The case studies and reflective activity are a good resource to use.
Easy to read, accessible for all staff.
This book will be added to our reading list for the upcoming academic year. I particularly like the case studies throughout, which I am confident will provide a forum for debate and discussion in lectures and challenge the thoughts and beliefs of our trainee teachers. It serves as an excellent guide to addressing the many behavioural issues we face in teaching and will certainly oprovide our students with some useful 'tools' and ideas to assist them in tackling issues around behaviour, when they are undertaking their teaching placements.
