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.

Student Behaviour: How to Decipher its Secret Language and Improving Outcom... - Karina Barley
22/12/2018

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course. Although I have been teaching many years, looking at the theory and practice of student behaviour, or in my case, misbehaviour, through the eyes of various experts, has given me fresh impetus and ideas on how to better tackle these problems. The combination of theoretical background notes and video clips works well. The need to comment on each note or video clip also aids in cementing these new ways of responding to problem behaviours in a more positive manner. A most well run and worthwhile course, no matter where one is in one’s teaching career
