In this new edition of his bestselling book, Bill Rogers brings together contributions from practising teachers that suggest ways to tackle disruptive and challenging behaviour.
The direct, practical and inspirational nature of these accounts will resonate with all teachers and school support staff working with any age group. Based on the everyday experiences of the teachers who have written them, these are teachers’ accounts offering sound advice and guidance to fellow professionals.
There are numerous case studies drawn from practice, each showing how the teacher manages the situation and what the outcome was: these examples from practice highlight the difference teachers can make to their students’ behaviour, attitude, self-esteem and peer acceptance.
Chapters look at:
- finding a way back from inappropriate behaviour;
- dealing with very challenging behaviour on a daily basis
- creating a peaceful school
- developing positive practice
Dr. Bill Rogers is an Education Consultant and author who lectures widely on behaviour management, discipline, effective teaching, stress management and teacher welfare across the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
