This learning event is right for you if you are a teacher (primary/secondary) or school leader and want to develop an integrated model of behaviour management applicable to your unique school community.
Are you or your staff experiencing implementation exhaustion? Are you always searching for the next new thing or quick fix for a curriculum or behaviour issue? Do you feel that your school never embeds and sustains a program properly before the next initiative arrives at your doorstep? If you answered yes to these questions then this workshop is for you!
The last 5 decades of research on behaviour management provide a platform for supporting schools to build an integrated whole school model of student discipline.
This workshop will examine and explore -
- What the research is saying about common themes and approaches with behaviour management
- What outcomes an ideal model of discipline will deliver for your school
- How to build an integrated model that is complimentary to your teaching and learning approach
- What to say and what to do in the busy classroom to bring this integrated model to life.
This workshop will encourage you to move away from a common school mistake of implementing single unrelated reforms - bringing in the expert for a workshop with staff and getting very little return or culture change for the investment. Be confident and build your own integrated model of behaviour management.
This learning event supports creating best practice toward meeting the following VRQA standard(s):
- Care, Safety and Welfare of Students – Student behaviour management (discipline)
- behaviour management approaches which are humanistic and have a focus on relationships
- strategies to teach more and manage student behaviour less
- an explicit framework of effective behaviour strategies that delivers on consistency.
