"I'm struggling with keeping students on task. Some strategies for how to deal with behaviour management would be great!"
Ah! Behaviour Management. It can be tricky. After all we’re looking at a:
New school year,
My goodness! SO much change already!
We’re all in the middle of learning how to manage our new classrooms. Whether that be establishing your rules or boundaries or working out how everyone ticks, Behaviour management will be on the lips of teachers up and down the country right now.
Let me share some Top Tips for Better Behaviour Management
This week I’m going to pull from my own experiences as a High School English teacher to share with you how I model and manage great behaviour for learning.
The standard (at Prof) tells us that we need to be about to show we can manage “challenging behaviour by establishing and negotiating clear expectations” (4.3)
What does that mean and where does it start?
Well… we’re going to talk about:
- How it all starts with YOU and your attitude and style in your classroom
- How you need to acknowledge that you can not control the behaviour of your students (or anyone else for that matter)
- How looking after yourself properly will positively impact your students’ learning and behaviour
- The importance of being like Elsa and “let(ing) it go”
- High expectations, how to share them, define them and stick to them.
I’ll also share some real examples of how you can play with the words you choose to use to influence your students’ behaviours.
Don’t forget that, if you enter your name and email below, we can send you a freebie that will guide you through everything here and get you well on your way to an amazing evidence post for your portfolio!
