While Australia has many students who meet behavioural expectations in classrooms and school environments, Australian teachers and students report disruptive behaviour as a challenge. Poor behaviour is a major cause of stress for teachers and can have a lasting impact on the school experience and outcomes of students. There is a need for schools to have consistent and clear approaches to behaviour that set and maintain behaviour expectations in lessons and throughout the school environment.
We know from the research evidence that effective behaviour supports:
• Prioritise relationships – teachers know and understand their students
• Equip teachers to teach learning behaviours and use strategies and routines in their classroom
• Use targeted approaches to meet the individual needs of students; and
• Are coherent and school-wide.
Hear from Karina Stocker, Sarah Richardson and Michael Rosenbrock as they share how they are improving behaviour and learning outcomes through the design and implementation of evidence-informed approaches.
