For pre-service teachers from preschool to secondary and in-service teachers who needs some practical ideas for classroom management.
Misbehaviour has been called 'the elephant in the classroom', meaning it is the one thing that cannot be ignored because it is so omnipresent and significant in its effect on pupil learning. This practical text shows how teachers can develop and maintain good behaviour and order in their classrooms. Its positive, realistic approach is based on a simple, effective structure which allows in-service or pre-service teachers to develop their own personal discipline plan. All major behaviour management models are also explained in useable terms. The scenarios at the beginning of each chapter encourage a problem solving approach by lecturers using the text.
