Effectively Managing Student Behaviour in Educational Settings


Course Description

Children learn best when their self-esteem is healthy and the educational expectations are clear. This course will focus on developing an understanding of the classroom as a dynamic learning environment in which the teacher assistant is an essential part; a philosophy of discipline that forms a basis for dealing effectively with children experiencing behavioural difficulties; and strategies and practical approaches for classroom management. Methods of pupil supervision; proactive approaches to discipline with an emphasis on problems solving and effective interventions; strategies for dealing with inappropriate confrontational behaviour in a productive life enhancing way; and observation and documentation of student actions in behavioural terms will also be included.
