Every teacher knows that the foundation of a good learning environment is effective behaviour management. Without the right attitude, resources and techniques, behaviour problems can disrupt classes, consume the teacher's time and subsequently affect the education and well-being of all the children. This book is brimming with quick, easy and effective techniques to help keep children focused on their work and engaged in appropriate behaviour within the classroom.
Based on Nicola S.Morgan's years of experience teaching and managing a range of challenging behaviours in the classroom, the book provides practical and do-able strategies that work and includes worksheets, rewards and other fully photocopiable resources. The ideas are all based around an original framework developed by the author called The 10 Rs for Behaviour Management. T he 10 Rs is a term for a group of strategies that are efficient 'tried and tested' techniques for managing children in the classroom, no matter what the behavioural difficulties are. They aim to prevent the occurrence of behaviour difficulties, or if problems do occur, they show how to quickly re-establish appropriate behaviour.
The behavior management ideas and resources in this book will provide invaluable practical support for teachers, learning support assistants, teaching assistants and trainee teachers.
