Is low-level disruption frustrating your students’ progress?
Are you fed up that your teaching time is being lost as a result of dealing with student ‘off task’ behaviour?
Are you disillusioned with a ‘one size fits all’ approach to behaviour management?
Low-level disruption is the bane of the school teacher’s working life. This course will offer realistic solutions that have been proven to work for keeping students on task and minimising costly low-level disruption. We will engage with six methodologies to prevent hundreds of hours being wasted by students' off-task behaviour. This isn’t a behaviour management course that sells just a single way of dealing with all cases of low-level disruption. Quite the opposite, it will provide a variety of solutions to low-level disruption that will be demonstrated and teachers can reflect upon which technique works for them.
