What do I need to know about Behaviour Management

Module 1

The aims of the unit are:

  1. To identify behaviour management programmes that have influenced good practice in schools.
  2. To introduce key principles which are referred to, and further developed, in future modules.
  3. To emphasise the importance of the positive features of discipline.

At this point, it is necessary to touch lightly on some of the theory behind the practice of behaviour management. Experienced teachers often forget that the many successful behaviour initiatives, they use in the classroom, can be traced back to any one of a variety of sources: from simply observing colleagues at work to reading a reference book; from taking advice from external agencies to a training video. This list is endless.

The Interactive Guide pulls together a comprehensive set of behaviour management strategies into one easy to use resource. This unit will focus on key areas of knowledge regarding behaviour management.
