“Classroom success through behaviour management; positive strategies to prevent challenging behaviours”
As educators we all have days where the behaviour of one, or more, student/s challenging behaviour not only disrupts and minimises their learning but limits learning opportunities for those around them. Days where we struggle to maintain control and battle to “stay afloat”. While these problems may seem insurmountable in the moment there are, research based, simple interventions that can be put in place to minimise the behaviour occurrence and set the classroom up for smooth, effective learning.
This course is aimed at educators, support staff, special educators and early educators.
Completing “Classroom success; positive strategies to prevent challenging behaviours” will contribute to 3 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing standards 4.1.2 (supporting student participation), 5.1.2 (assessing student learning) and 6.2.2 (engaging in professional learning and improving practice) from the Australian Professional Standards for teachers maintaining proficient teacher accreditation in NSW.
Dealing with challenging behaviours after they happen can be costly in both time and resources further removing teaching opportunities from the class as a whole. In addition to the logistical issues surrounding this type of behaviour management, reactive responses to challenging behaviour are only short term solutions; they do not focus on why the behaviour is happening, how to prevent it or how to teach an appropriate alternative. Instead the implementation of a few, carefully selected, positive behaviour supports can prevent the behaviour from even occurring in the first place.
