Being able to effectively manage the behaviour in your classroom is one of the basic foundations of good teaching. However creating a positive productive learning environment is challenging as the causes of behavioural issues can be complex and difficult to identify.

This book presents a solution-focused approach to behaviour management in primary and secondary schools, starting with the child and offering a flexible methodology and practical strategies for facilitating long-term positive behaviour.

Key coverage includes:

•             An overview of main approaches to behaviour management drawing from educational theory and research

•             Case studies throughout the book exploring key strategies and issues

•             How to develop confidence in the classroom as a new teacher

•             Neuroscience and behaviour: what can we learn from recent scientific discoveries?

This book provides an interesting and thought provoking approach to behaviour management and would be a very useful part of any behaviour toolkit or range of approaches for teachers new and old to try.
