Improving School Behaviour

First Edition


March 2000 | 160 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`Certainly worth reading in order to be reminded of some positive reasons for entering the teaching profession: to value the process of education as much as the content, to view children holistically and to consider schools as places of learning for all' - British Journal of Special Education

Behaviour difficulties in our schools will not go away, but they can be significantly reduced. This book makes available to practitioners and students the frameworks and ideas which will help them minimize behaviour difficulty in school.

The authors address three important levels: the school, the classroom and the individual. At each level, they show how to identify and analyze patterns of difficulty, and then identify methods for improvement.

Improving School Behaviour has been written in order to bring to readers useful approaches founded in a comprehensive range of useful international research, and in years of experience in working with schools. It is a mine of helpful ideas and practical approaches. This is not recipe book, or a source of quick fixes or favourite theories.

The authors:

· challenge simplified rhetoric about school behaviour

· help practitioners identify real areas and effective methods for improvement.

· identify the shortcomings of much conventional wisdom about improving behaviour,

· show how to implement practical, evidence-based alternatives which can lead to improved results.

Improving School Behaviour is an essential resource for all those who are not afraid to improve. It is suitable for use in settings for all age-ranges.
