Cracking the Hard Class

Behaviour Management

In framing this book, Bill Rogers discusses `what changes' and `what stays the same' in teacher leadership and behaviour. Original chapters from well-known writers and practitioners set out current approaches in behaviour leadership, in terms of practical concerns about behaviour management and discipline. The emphasis on teacher leadership is intentional, as the authors believe that the kind of teacher leadership in a school significantly affects the effectiveness and humanity of discipline and management.

All the contributors have a teaching background and all are directly involved with schools, in research and consultancy. Bill Rogers works in classrooms with teachers, as a coach//mentor. Each chapter demonstrates a commitment to support classroom teachers with practical action research in areas such as:

- Teacher leadership

- Effective teaching

- Colleague support

- Discipline and behaviour management

- Working with students who show emotional-behavioural disorders.

This book will be useful to teachers and other education professionals interested in behaviour management, discipline and colleague support issues.

`This will be well thumbed by staff who are interested in evaluating and improving their personal and collective practice... buy the book' - Tim Brighouse, Times Educational Supplement

`It is a balanced book in that each chapter describes a different aspect of the subject, albeit within a humanistic approach… It was heartening to see reference made to the Elton Report of 1989 which, as an in-depth study of discipline in schools, remains the definitive work on the subject, and this book presents an equally humanitarian and thought-provoking overview, fourteen years down the line' - Mark Edwards, Nurturing Potential

`Each chapter demonstrates a commitment to support classroom teachers with practical action research. The book will be invaluable to teachers and other education professionals interested in behaviour management, discipline and colleague support issues' - David Allaway, Behaviour UK

interesting book that is clear to understand focus is very much around schools wanted some examples specifically for the training enviroment

This is as excellent text to support the strategic view of Behaviour Management for our students. I have instructed our library to stock with this text to support the PGCE and Certificate in Education programmes.
