Content

This unit investigates contemporary issues relating to effective classroom management and develops advanced knowledge and skills to understand the variables that influence learning, including school based barriers to social inclusion. It encourages students to conduct a full ecological analysis of all factors that influence effective behaviour management.  It concentrates on building teacher skill rather than focusing on student deficits.  Drawing on theoretical and practical understandings that underpin the notions of social behaviour within classrooms, participants will examine and compare a variety of models and consider pedagogy, 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.
