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.

I think this course is very relevant for all teachers. It helped me to understand that students may present negative behaviours for a myriad of reasons and that we can make changes to assist these students and this will make a big difference in our classroom management. I found each session very relevant and the content quality to be very appropriate.

It delivered a great background into behaviour and what is motivating a student’s behaviour. I would have liked more on rewards for students especially in the younger years.
