Behaviour management – Strategies that support Positive Relationships
Behaviour management has become harder as our world has become more complex. It gets tougher and trickier to find a common approach that everyone can agree to and even harder to find students, teachers and parents who actually stick to the agreed behaviours.
In this Behaviour Management Conference our presenters detail the five key areas that teachers and schools need to consider if they are to successfully develop fully functioning, high performing and socially competent learners. Our presenters believe that students behave when they can. Sometimes poor behaviour is a student’s best response in a complex social setting called a classroom or playground.
So, what we have to do as educators is to cease trying to punish the bad behaviours out of recalcitrant students and replace the pain with practical collaborative problem solving techniques that eliminate the need for bad behaviour.
These provide teachers who work with students that “need the most love but show it in the most unloving ways sometimes” a sequence to apply and the strategies that will deliver the change that are needed for your school and classroom to flourish.
Session One: 9.00am – 10.45am
Ruth Reading – Quick & Effective Strategies for building relationships, resolving conflict and working together
This webinar explores strategies for creating a positive and productive working environment for students and teachers. We will explore ways to manage student behaviour to create calmer classrooms where teaching and learning is more fun and rewarding. You will discover ways to achieve respectful, healthy relationships with students where they take responsibility for their actions and thinking.
By the end of the session participants will have explored:
- Preventative strategies to promote a positive learning environment.
- Effective responses for pivoting around resistant or argumentative behaviours and de-escalating potential conflicts
- Non-verbal and other low-level intervention techniques for subtly ‘nudging’ students back on-task
- Techniques for getting and holding student attention and routines for minimising disruption
- Strategies to help students take responsibility for their actions and find ways to fix things when conflict has occurred.
10.45am – 11.15am Morning Tea break
Session Two: 11.15am – 1.00pm
David Vinegrad – 7 Essential Teacher Skills
If you have ever wondered how those masterful teachers run stress free lessons with lots of engagement then this session is for you. We will cover the 7 secrets or skills or techniques, call them what you like but they have been around forever! The difficulty is translating these skills into consciously competent practice – what to say and do in the classroom to develop learning behaviours.
Participants will be led through the following magical skills that effective teachers use –
1. Classroom expectations shared & owned
2. Routines & procedures taught & known
3. Active supervision of students
4. Positive classroom environment
5. Functional physical layout
6. Maximize academic engagement
7. Predictable responses to positive/negative behaviour
1.00pm – 1.45pm Lunch break
Session Three: 1.45pm – 3.30pm (includes 15 minute break at 2.30pm)
Ruth Reading -Understanding Shame and how to respond to it.
Brené Brown, defines shame as an “intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging.”
Our beliefs shape how we think and act so it’s no surprise that someone who feels flawed and unworthy of love and belonging, will act out in ways that reinforce that belief. Shame can be found in many of our students, and especially our most vulnerable ones. It can be the reason why students who have repeated conflict with others, continue to reoffend. Our students need adults in their lives that will listen, empathise, understand, and help them find a way forward. We can be that for them.
In this workshop we will explore
- What shame is and where it comes from.
- The difference between shame and guilt.
- What the indicators of shame are and how they might be expressed in our students.
- Ways to create a classroom environment that combats shame and helps students believe the truth about who they are.
