General Description

Behaviour! As teachers, you have to deal with a variety of student behaviours on a daily basis. You can have the perfect lesson plans, great organisation, and even the best resources, but if you have one or more behaviour issues in your classroom; the classroom’s entire rhythm can be thrown into disarray.
Children behaving negatively can cause a myriad problems for all teachers and understanding these behaviours means that you will not only create a more harmonious classroom environment, but you will also be able to provide better learning experiences for ALL students.
This course explores childhood behaviour and provides strategies to assist teachers to understand and make necessary adjustments depending on that behaviour; but also to assist students to understand their own behaviour so that they may choose to make more appropriate choices.

Audience

teachers, teacher assistants, assistant principals, principals.

This course was very helpful in reminding me that the challenging behaviours that I experience in my classroom are not always personal and although emotionally challenging for me are simply a way of students trying to communicate with me about something else that I need to consider in my relationship and interactions with them.

This course was not exactly what i expected. I hoped it would cover a wide range of specific learning behaviour and challenges, e.g. ODD, but it seemed to just skim the surface of many topics, without really delving deep.

I found the course content relevant to teaching my secondary classes – good reminders of good classroom management. The videos selected were of good quality and relevant; I appreciated the input of Dr Bill Rogers and the emphasis on calmness in the classroom. The other content was also of good quality. Some sites that links directed me to, could not be found.
