SPELT Academic Session
Topics: EFFECTIVE BEHAVIOURAL MANAGEMENT IN THE CLASSROOM AND SCHOOL It is essential that we recognize the problems of violence in our country and academic institutions; we need to acknowledge they are not separate and unrelated, but are interwoven. Students are more at a risk for developing antisocial patterns of behavior and their negative outcomes are likely to be punished rather than their problems addressed in a positive manner. Especially, Bullying is a serious problem and if not handled properly, can become a huge problem in the whole school. Hence, it is important to understand behavioural problems and manage them properly and positively in the classroom and schools. Many behavioural problems can be prevented using effective behavior-management strategies and models. This workshop will describe what is meant by discipline and explain how assertive discipline is implemented. Discussion on behavior management in four major areas of the school system, including: school; outside the class; classroom, and individual student. Discussion on various models of behaviourial management and the pros and cons of each of these models and provide the five concrete recommendations to help teachers reduce common behaviour problems. Participants will study proven and promising prevention practices appropriate for use at primary, secondary, and tertiary levels which will enable them to address the behavioural and academic needs of children and youth.
