Managing Behaviour in the Primary School
The original edition of this book made accessible to primary school teachers and student teachers the means of putting many of the Elton Report's findings into practice. The author's philosophy on behavior management still stands, but the ideas have been revised and updated to take account of more recent thought about good practice in primary education and the management of schools today.
The book suggests tried and tested strategies for forestalling behavior problems through thoughtful class management and lesson planning; responding positively to behavior incidents; communicating positive expectations; and enhancing pupil motivation.
There are useful checklists throughout and material for experienced staff as well as for students and newly qualified teachers.
