General Description

Student management can be one of the most challenging aspects of teaching. What is clear is that consistent and fair practices produce the best responses, especially when paired with specific techniques to build positive relationships. Part of this session will assist you to determine and set up clear and fair processes for yourself (in your classroom) and perhaps also for teams of teachers that you work with.

There are also occasions where students do not respond to clear and consistent practices. On these occasions, it can be easy to become frustrated or to question our own abilities. The information presented in this session will attempt to help you understand where some of these behaviours may be coming from and how to deal with them.

We will use a problem-based learning approach in this session to look at where we are in terms of student management, and what we need to do to get to where we want to go. With this approach results will be based on YOUR needs and your class.

Audience

Classroom teachers in secondary schools.

This course is a beneficial reminder to teachers, that a ‘one size fits all’ approach to student management, is an erroneous expectation.

The course was very good in expanding my tool box of classroom management strategies. It also made me think about the way students learned, and how to help students with diverse learning needs. It was well structured and easy to follow, and Lauren was always accessible if I needed further assistance.

This course had an overwhelming amount of information and data on the subject that was easily deciphered and understood with the use of graphs and diagrams. The supplied lessons on power point were excellent to be used in any classroom for geography, science, environmental sciences etc.

This course was great in respect to sharing ideas and gaining awareness of student management practices. Reading other teachers' experiences was very informative and made me feel that I wasn’t alone with overall school or classroom management issues. I very much enjoyed the content of this course and the practical activities.

A worthwhile course to do especially as school staff together so we can collaborate and be on the “same page” in a whole school approach to class room management / discipline policies.

I found the course to be very informative, and it reinforced the fact that I actually was providing a positive learning environment for my students – when I took the time to analyse and reflect on it.

However, if you work in a more diverse environment from the normal classroom as I do BYETC, it didn’t provide an array of alternate strategies that I wasn’t already implementing – I needed ideas that were ‘out of the box’!!!

A well organised and developed course that provided practical skills and the inclusion of personal expertise and experience of the presenter was easy to implement into everyday teaching practice. The course excelled at encouraging personal reflection and gave me the confidence to implement changes within my challenging classrooms.
