Managing Behaviour in Further and Adult Education
- Susan Wallace - Nottingham Trent University, UK
Achieving QTLS Series
this has helped with students behavior for a new course that I have started teaching on
The real life examples in this book gave me great insight into managing behaviour in my classroom. The tasks spread throughout the book helped to develop my understanding of behaviour management and to look at situations from different perspectives. A very useful addition to my library
This is a practical book, with useful examples of how teachers can manage difficult behaviours. Key learning theories are briefly introduced (Maslow, Skinner, Rogers), but the focus is on how to deal with disruptive groups in the classroom. Each chapter helpfullt ends with a summary of key points, "branching options" for how to explore the topic, and references. It is a shame that the paper quality is so poor and the font is very small. While the book is aimed at teachers in FE, there is much useful advice for HE practitioners.
In this book Susan Wallace provides and excellent resource for all student teachers wishing to enter post compulsory education. There are very few sources for behaviour management in this sector. This book will be of great value to students as well as experienced practitioners.
An interesting and well-structured book, which students on our life-long learning programme will find invaluable.
An essential read for those looking into classroom behaviours. Up to date with all relevant theories and academic situations, and a useful guide for further reading in this field.
Excellent for teaching adult learners
My learners have found the book to be useful and to offer sound strategies for the dynamic learners that they work with in FE and adult education.
Thx. This book is a good complement for school improvement literature.
This was useful for me
