Designing challenging behaviour out of the classroom
Many training sessions on challenging behaviour, will look at how to deal with challenging behaviour when it happens.
This training session takes a different approach by looking at techniques that a teacher can employ to design challenging behaviour out of the classroom.
This involves looking at what challenging behaviour is, why it is exhibited, and when in the session (the triggers) it is most likely. Once this has been identified it is then possible to redesign teaching sessions, to reduce these potential triggers, and in doing so reduce the challenging behaviour within the classroom.
This session is based on practical ideas that Dave employed and tested when teaching to reduce the problem of challenging behaviour.
Ideas that may be covered in the session will include:
- What is challenging behaviour, and why does it occur?
- Identifying and reducing the triggers to challenging behaviour.
- Class management techniques to help sessions to 'flow' and thus reduce the likelihood of challenging behaviour.
- Long term strategies for dealing with challenging behaviour.
Please note: this session is not designed as a 'self defence' session, nor a session on refraining individuals showing aggressive or violent behaviour.
- Sectors: Nursery/Primary, Secondary, FE.
- Session Duration: Short, Half day or Full day.
- Target audience: Teaching, Senior managers, Classroom support.
