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 Improve Student Outcomes - Karina Barley
27/04/2020

The quality of the content was good. It touched on how there is more to the students' behaviour than what can be seen, which was something I have been thinking about and has been helpful clearing my mind and straightening things out in my head.
It has given me a greater understanding and appreciation on getting to know my students and reflect on my own practice as a teacher.

The course began talking about PBS which is understandable related to student behaviour, but it is not what I personally was expecting from the course. I felt a bit misguided when that topic came out as it varied from my expectations. Overall the content was delivered in an engaging and in a number of ways. It not only gave me a better understanding of student behaviour but gave me an opportunity to reflect upon my own teaching methods, practices, and responses.

The quality and relevance of this course to myself as an SLSO was good and informative. I do feel like perhaps some of the videos were a little long but, they also NEEDED to be. Very well done
