If you want to watch the full video with all of these segments in one go, you can find it here. And there are loads more of Sue Cowley’s behaviour management videos to be found on our YouTube Channel Tips for Teachers.
When you see a teacher in complete control of their classroom, what’s their secret? Is it witchcraft? Did they just get lucky with the perfect group of kids? Here, you can learn about the big and little things that help maintain consistently good standards of behaviour, from clear setting clear expectations and guidelines to effective verbal and non-verbal communication.
When you’re meeting a new cohort for the first time, or even teaching your first ever class, what are the most important things you need to say? And how should you say them. Here, Sue gives a short example of the sort of speech she uses to set the tone for the class for the year.
There’s always that fear, particularly for new teachers, of ‘losing the class’. The panic that they won’t respect you, and that nothing you try will work. That you’re just not the right character to get bad behaviour under control. Here, Sue explains that with a collection of techniques, done consistently, anyone can manage behaviour effectively.
Why do some children behave differently with different teachers? This video runs through some of the key factors, from the subject being taught to the teacher’s confidence, style and behaviour.
If you don’t let children know what behaviour is expected, there’s only one way they’re going to find out – by pushing boundaries. So what’s the first step any teacher should take towards setting those guidelines and improving children’s behaviour?
What’s the best way to learn about and refine your behaviour management technique? By watching other teachers. Here Sue discusses the virtues of observing other behaviour management styles in order to hone your own.
What happens when you feel like you’ve completely lost control of your classroom? What should you do? This video looks at how you can reset and regain control of your pupils without panicking, and to ask for help when needed.
Is good behaviour always about having a quiet and ordered classroom? Not really. You want children to be engaged with learning and have fun in school. But the trick here is getting them to go from excited to calm when needed.
It’s easy as a new teacher to take children’s misbehaviour very personally and respond defensively. Here, Sue explains that rather than shouting at the class, taking a more relaxed approach is much more helpful in resolving situations.
