Strategies that support Positive Behaviour Management
Friday 20th May 2022
Session One: 9.00am – 10.45am
Glen Pearsall – Quick & Effective Strategies for Shaping Positive Behaviour
This webinar explores strategies for creating a positive and productive working environment for students and teachers. Featuring highly effective, easy-to-implement techniques, this webinar provides practical steps for teaching young people to take more responsibility for their own behaviour. Emphasis is placed on finding the lowest level intervention possible for addressing off-task behaviours and getting students back to what matters most – their learning.
By the end of the session participants will have explored:
• 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 for turning around class groups whose behaviour has become distracted and disruptive
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 – 2.00pm Lunch break
Session Three: 2.00pm – 3.45pm (includes 15 minute break at 2.45pm)
Greg Mitchell -Trauma Informed Behavioural Health A different approach to student behaviour issues
With a sizable increases in student Anxiety, Depression, Self-harm, and Suicide ideation most schools find themselves trying to use punishment and reward systems to deal with students who are distress driven. These students will go to great extremes to escape pain, whether it’s physical pain or emotional pain. In fact, they usually don’t consider the consequences of their behaviour when acting badly. Kids with trauma backgrounds odds of having learning or behaviour problems in school are 32 times higher than kids who had no adverse childhood experiences.
This workshop details how teachers, leaders, students, and parents can use a Behavioural Health approach which sees Behaviour Management, Mental Health and Trauma Awareness
as one issue, forms practical strategies that build better behaviour, manages mental health issues, and responds in a trauma compassionate manner.
You will be introduced to the Behavioural Health approach framed around an operating system called RUMBL which
• RECOGNISES and clearly explains the behaviours we want to build with our students.
• UNDERSTANDS behaviour well enough to predict when challenging behaviours will happen and be strategically prepared.
• MANAGES and controls our emotional response to challenging behaviours
• BUILDS influential responses that grow relationships, builds competence and fosters engagement.
• LEARNS to teach students how to master their own behaviours and to grow with competence and confidence.
This is a life changing workshop as one secondary teacher noted “Thank you very much for today’s workshop which has been one of the best and most useful courses I have done in my teaching career.”
