Dealing with behaviour problems, students with difficulties, developing policies, promoting positive strategies and resolving disputes – are core concerns for teachers, principals, management, parents and policymakers. Indeed there are few more challenging issues in education today. The work of Patricia Dwyer at the Centre for Education Services addresses all of these concerns in a most effective, resourceful and practical manner. This teacher guide weaves together the key elements towards making a worthwhile response to ‘Achieving Positive Behaviour’ – best practise across Ireland, the lessons of worldwide research and clear guidelines for action. This book will be a valuable asset to practitioners and those with any responsibility for, or interest in, behaviour issues.
This book will:
- Present best practice from a variety of contexts
- Provide a range of models to move schools from policy to practise
- Give an overview of global responses to behaviour management
- Outline policy-development approaches
- Offer solutions to particular concerns in the behaviour area
