Chronic, low-level behaviour problems can have major detrimental effects on both teaching and learning. This resource gives effective and practical advice to enable teachers to teach and students to engage actively in the learning process. It deals with the top low-level student behaviour issues which give cause for concern to teachers in the classroom, including:
• Answering back
• Constant attention-seeking behaviour
• Refusing to comply or take responsibility for actions
• Being off task
• Bothering other learners
• Out of seat
• Lack of equipment
• Mobile phones
• Managing anger
A user-friendly PowerPoint presentation with a comprehensive trainer’s pack enables schools to undertake their own ‘in-house’ training. In addition clear, photocopiable ‘Prompt cards’ give members of staff their own personal library of strategies, techniques and advice, including:
• Effective use of rewards and sanctions
• Restorative practices
• Using a planned approach
• Tracking and monitoring behaviour.
How to End Low-Level Disruption can be used as a whole school training programme to support CPD activities to establish consistent behaviour management approaches by all staff or may be used as a stand-alone reference pack.
