The issue of behaviour has, and always will be, a main dilemma facing schools. Encouraging positive relationships whilst preventing disruption, and motivating students to learn, raises concerns for any teacher.
This fully updated second edition of Teaching without Disruption in the Primary School offers a comprehensive and constructive approach to developing effective behaviour management. Packed full of tasks, case studies, and research-based guidance, this extremely practical book reflects high quality behaviour management training and is crucially informed by empirical evidence on exactly what works in classrooms and schools.
Containing two brand new chapters - one on the importance of theory in developing effective behaviour management, and the other detailing a toolkit for constructing effective classroom management plans - the book presents a model for developing:
effective behaviour management at the individual pupil, classroom and whole school level
professional social skills, assertiveness and coping strategies
understanding of how teachers' thinking and behaviour can unwittingly affect pupil behaviour
a roadmap for establishing and maintaining authority
pupils' self-control and social competence using a cognitive-behavioural approach
an appreciation of the value of adopting a research-based approach to behaviour management.
Roland Chaplain has used this programme to successfully teach behaviour management techniques to thousands of PGCE trainees at the University of Cambridge, UK. Underpinned by contemporary educational, psychological and neuroscientific research, this book offers a progressively focused behaviour management model which will appeal to all teachers and teacher trainees, as well as to those who train them.
