|Unit chair:||B Humphrey|
This unit investigates contemporary issues relating to effective classroom management and the social variables that influence learning, including school based barriers to social inclusion. Drawing on theoretical and practical understandings that underpin the notions of social behaviour within classrooms, participants will examine and compare a variety of discipline models and consider principles and teacher strategies that promote effective behaviour management. Critical to the examination of teacher strategies are a number of topics that include an understanding of the purpose of behaviour, the impact of teacher responses, the problem of ownership and the ability to identify the social needs of students. The assignments encourage participants to reflect on their own practice to formulate an effective discipline plan.
Three assessment tasks totalling approximately 6000 words:
Task 1: One pre-reading task (500 – 700 words) reflecting on your own role as a teacher and one post reading reflection (maximum 1000 words, 30%).
Task 2: Group work providing an analysis of a chosen model (maximum 2000 words, 30%).
Task 3: Case study (approx. 2500 words, 40%).
