Some of us may view behaviour management as an “art form” rather than a “systematic process” that needs to be established, practised, and reviewed constantly. This webinar will explore what really good teachers say and do to make classroom management look effortless. Participants will be led through the basics of the most effective discipline systems and that the key to any positive and engaging behaviour management system is that it must be “values” driven and have a “relational” focus to build a robust classroom community and to maximise academic outcomes.
We all want to imagine ourselves as expert teachers who can manage most classroom behaviours. We want to believe that we can have respectful relationships with students and that they are excited to come to class and behave in civil and productive ways.
- The ability to build a safe and sane classroom climate by being “fair” and “firm”
- The ability to Teach and develop discipline with less reliance on punishment
- Acknowledge of how to establish classroom rules and expectations.
