Classroom Management and Effective Teaching
Consistent with the “Positive Behaviour for Learning” approach to education, “Classroom Behaviour: A Practical Guide to Effective Teaching, Behaviour Management and Colleague Support” draws on the expertise and research of Dr Bill Rogers to create a learning environment that strives for best practice.
Effective Teaching, Classroom Behaviour and Collegial Support challenges educators to learn and apply both established and new approaches to teaching and classroom management, requiring thinking and application on multiple levels within a differentiated educational setting. At its core in classrooms, teachers will be challenged to examine alternative and proven approaches to their instructional model to improve and reflect upon their teaching craft in a non-judgmental, collegially support environment.
The research tellingly provides the following rationale: “Rogers, offers teachers a wide repertoire of relational management skills that is centred in providing clear guidance for professional integrity and emotional literacy in responding for minimal intervention right through to responding effectively to the most challenging student learning situations”.
