240 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Understanding behaviour management and applying it in your classroom is vital for effective teaching and learning.

In tune with current policy requirements and educational trends, this book reviews major behaviour management theories, outlining the key principles, advantages, and limitations of each approach.

Examples of real classroom situations in primary and secondary schools explore the practicalities of behaviour management in a range of contexts. Each chapter also contains reflective questions and activities that enable you to develop, implement and evaluate your own flexible tools for behaviour management.

Coverage includes:

  • ·          Developing interpersonal skills to support successful teaching
  • ·         Harnessing emotional intelligence to promote an emotionally aware classroom
  • ·         Building relationships that encourage appropriate behaviour
  • ·         Dealing with the challenges of inclusion
  • ·         Motivating and engaging children
  • ·         Managing stress and growing as an empowered teacher

This is essential reading for all initial teacher education courses at both primary and secondary level, including university-based (PGCE, PGDE, BA QTS, BEd), school-based (SCITT, School Direct, Teach First) and employment-based routes into teaching, and beginning teachers.
