    SchoolsImprove The management of behaviour is unique to every situation; good luck making a generic behaviour management effective

    andylutwyche Yes. Even compulsory academic curric manfests its inappropriateness in diff ways in diff subjects. GBM another mad Platonism

  3. robrolfemaths

    SchoolsImprove Yes, but practical should never mean prescriptive, otherwise you end up with nonsense like ‘assertive discipline’

    SchoolsImprove although helpful, It is important to remember that this idea addresses only the symptoms and NOT the cause.

    SchoolsImprove Solution based behaviour management needs to address the Emotional drivers behind the behaviour. I still support this idea.

    robrolfemaths SchoolsImprove Teaching requires an understanding of learning needs. Behaviour requires understanding of learning needs.

    andylutwyche SchoolsImprove I agree each child and situation is unique but there are many effective strategies that should be discussed.

  10. andylutwyche

    platt_f SchoolsImprove Agreed but if each situation is unique then quite difficult to run a “module” on it. Key to it is knowing the kids

  11. platt_f

    andylutwyche SchoolsImprove that’s true but lots to learn from sharing experiences and discussing practical ideas.

  12. andylutwyche

    platt_f SchoolsImprove Yes indeed but that could/should be covered on teaching practise to be honest. Better coming from current teachers

  13. platt_f

    andylutwyche SchoolsImprove Good point but what if you don’t have good teachers to learn from? Plenty bad practice in schools…

  14. andylutwyche

    platt_f SchoolsImprove Absolutely; would hope that you’d be unlucky to have 2 “bad” placements. Individual ways of dealing with behaviour

  15. platt_f

    andylutwyche SchoolsImprove I agree but as new teachers often find beh management challenging, strategies and resources should be shared.

  16. andylutwyche

    platt_f SchoolsImprove Agreed but they are making out that it needs months of classes – it doesn’t. Advice and finding own way is the key

  17. platt_f

    andylutwyche SchoolsImprove Ah right I didn’t know that. It absolutely does not need months of classes – that’s ridiculous!

  18. andylutwyche

    platt_f SchoolsImprove It might be my interpretation but point is that it doesn’t need loads of time in a classroom

  19. peterabarnard

    andylutwyche SchoolsImprove Management definitely has to change..it is all command and control nowadays…generic…needs systems thinking

  20. peterabarnard

    andylutwyche irvingphil SchoolsImprove It just needs completely reconceptualising. It cannot change when test scores are the only measure

  21. irvingphil

    andylutwyche SchoolsImprove know where you’re coming from; disagree. Letting young teachers know standardisation’s impossible IS training.

  22. andylutwyche

    irvingphil SchoolsImprove There you go, you’ve just done it. It doesn’t need a whopping great pile of essays and paperwork is my point

    SchoolsImprove Luckily 4 me Foxwood offered it as CPD in my 2nd yr of teaching from the wonderful Leeds Ed Ed Psyche. Now I pass it on.

Let us know what you think...
