Classroom and behaviour management strategies play an important role in the creation and maintenance of effective learning environments. A diverse and changing student cohort means teachers in the twenty-first Century need a detailed understanding of the diverse factors impacting upon student and group behaviour and a robust set of strategies for creating positive, effective classroom management plans. This unit provides students with opportunities to reflect upon the strengths and weaknesses of diverse behaviour management strategies and to develop their own behaviour management plan.


Assessment 1: A & B: Behaviour management in context. Students compare and contrast approaches to behaviour management in different contexts through an online debate and an online journal task.  (A 1000 words 20%), (B 1500 words 40%)
Assessment 2: Behaviour Management Today - Students will develop a plan or advice on an issue of behaviour management for a particular group/class. In the plan students will outline their behaviour management philosophy (with a rationale and justification); they will identify key prevention and intervention strategies; they will reflect upon the extent to which the plan caters for a diverse student group.
