Behaviour Management: An Essential Guide for Student and Newly Qualified Teachers explores the current issues and theories in behaviour management. It encourages readers to think and reflect on their own experiences and offers practical advice for developing confidence in the classroom and quickly adapting to the changing needs of different students and settings.

Each chapter of the book focuses on a different aspect of behaviour management, addressing issues such as building routines, health and safety, mental health and using technology to support behaviour management. It includes:

  • Tasks designed to encourage analytical, reflective and original thinking.
  • Resources and guidance to develop practice and collate evidence to add to portfolios or other files required by tutors, mentors and assessors.
  • Case studies from personal experience that provide tips and tools for effectively managing behaviour.

This book is an essential resource for student teachers, newly or recently qualified teachers and anyone with an interest in developing an understanding of behaviour within schools.
