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.

Content was relevant to the course

To be honest, the quality of the course was very average compared to every other behaviour management professional development I have completed, whether online or face to face.
The quality could be improved with better use of videos and the use of clear examples of how strategies could be implemented in particular scenarios, as well as what to do when those strategies don’t initially work. There wasn’t much of this.
However the content itself was relevant and the information provided was accurate.

About the team


Lauren Cook

Creator

Lauren Cook can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to teach. From the beginning of her career in 2001, she strove to understand what was at the basis of good teaching and learning.

Lauren spent many of her early years of teaching in brand new schools, where the exploration of best practice was at the forefront. Lauren undertook a variety of leadership roles from curriculum to professional learning to student management. She also joined the Faculty of Education at Deakin University to work with pre-service teachers.

Since 2010 Lauren has had significant leadership roles in both public and private educational institutions with portfolios in subject leadership (English), curriculum and wellbeing. She is now Head of Senior Boys at a senior campus of an independent school and was recognised for her work in boys wellbeing by a New Voices Scholarship for Educational Leadership in 2019. In the preceding year, she also undertook an international action research project on boys and stories and has presented on both the local and the international stage to teachers and principals alike.
