What behaviours and how they effect us and education
- Low Level
- High Level
What sort of educator are you?
Discussion of types of responses to behaviour that is disruptive and the effects of these responses.
Throught the workshop we discuss classroom management strategies as well as crisis management strategies - these actions must;
- meet the pupil’s needs
- encourage the pupil to make positive choices and develop self-control
- support the pupil in difficult situations
- safely manage crises if and when they occur
There are four basic approaches, which research has found to improve classroom behaviour:
- Rules and procedure
- Teacher-pupil / student relationships
- Disciplinary interventions
- Mental set
Sometimes a cycle can develop between the teacher and the students that makes things even worse: the pupils misbehave more, you dislike them more, you are less positive and friendly, they dislike you and your classes more, they disrupt more and so it goes on. The cycle needs to be broken.
