Product Description

Synopsis

Faced with deteriorating behaviour with a long list of possible causes, many teachers feel overwhelmed by the problem of challenging behaviour. This book has been written to strengthen and inspire even the most battle-fatigued teacher. It provides: clear, practical advice for senior managers, teachers and teaching assistants; definitions of troubled and troublesome behaviour; a helpful model of behaviour management; and strategies for avoiding confrontation and dealing with it when it does arise. Respected author Veronica Birkett writes with warmth and humour, bringing a wealth of classroom experience to this practical and accessible book. Taking the approach that prevention is better than cure, advice is given on how to create a positive ethos, in which challenging behaviour is less likely to occur in the first place. "How to Manage and Teach Children with Challenging Behaviour" is sure to become an indispensable friend and guide to any teacher experiencing the daily challenges of a modern classroom. It includes the latest title in LDA's category-bestselling "How To" series to tackle special needs in the school classroom.

Format: Paperback
If I could only have been given one book to read during my teacher training, this should have been it. It would have saved me many miserable years of wondering how to deal with unruly children. It might even have kept me in the teaching profession - who knows - instead of escaping to a less stressful
occupation.
Veronica Birkett's excellent behaviour manual is written engagingly and yet authoritatively. She sees things from both sides of the fence - from the nitty-gritty of the coalface of classroom teaching, to advisory reports written by the likes of Ofsted.
This book deals with the what, why, when and how of managing behaviour; each chapter bursting with realistic practical examples. It explains how to retain control in any challenging situation, exploying a heirachy of warnings and/or sanctions, backed up by a three-tiered model of behaviour management.
Vital distinctions are made, eg. troubled vs troublesome, and positive vs negative strokes.
Full of useful resources, checklists, personal experience, examples of good and bad practice, humourous touches, inspiration, and practiacal information.
An absorbing read - yet another in a fine series. I think parents could learn a lot from it too.

This book is quite good but I found it a little basic. Useful to lend to less experienced teachers and TAs

Format: Paperback
Short chapters with lots of tips on engaging and managing the little devils. Maybe too much aimed at Primary level for me.
