Course Description

Behaviour! As teachers, you have to deal with a variety of student behaviours on a daily basis. You can have the perfect lesson plans, great organisation, and even the best resources, but if you have one or more behaviour issues in your classroom; the classroom’s entire rhythm can be thrown into disarray.

Children behaving negatively can cause a myriad problems for all teachers and understanding these behaviours means that you will not only create a more harmonious classroom environment, but you will also be able to provide better learning experiences for ALL students.

This course explores childhood behaviour and provides strategies to assist teachers to understand and make necessary adjustments depending on that behaviour; but also to assist students to understand their own behaviour so that they may choose to make more appropriate choices.


Teachers, teacher assistants, assistant principals, principals.
