Classroom Behaviour Course

Classroom Behavior Course

Classroom behaviour of the students and the teachers is very important as an errant student can spoil an entire teaching session. The teacher’s response to such behaviour also is equally important as it sends out a signal to the other students. This course focuses on this important aspect of a teacher’s training by looking at the area of classroom behaviour. It gives very practical tips and strategies which can lead to success when working with students. There are a series of Reflection on Practice exercises that highlight your own practice and show measure to improve it.

The resources provided during the course are up to date with the current practices and cover the following aspects:

  • Research into behaviour
  • Making a strong and positive first impression
  • Managing confrontational and inappropriate behaviour
  • Skills required when dealing with children having Special Educational Needs
  • Building strong and good relationships
  • Developing positive and healthy learning environment.

 

This course is aimed at teachers, lecturers, teaching assistants and supervisors. In fact, it can be recommended for everyone working with children.
