Managing Behavior in the Primary School Summary

Managing Behavior in the Primary School by J.W. Docking

The first edition of this book, published in the wake of the Elton Report, "Discipline in Schools", made accessible to primary school teachers and student teachers the means of putting many of the Report's findings into practice. It has proved of value in a period of unparallelled change in primary education and the management of schools. Six years on, however, there is a need for updating and the introduction of ideas which have been found effective in the interim. The author has enhanced the book's appeal by incorporating frequent checklists and by including new material for experienced staff as well as for students and newly qualified teachers. Using a larger format than it precursor, the second edition continues to place emphasis on strategies for forestalling behaviour problems through thoughtful class management and lesson planning, responding positively to behaviour incidents, communicating positive expectations and enhancing pupil motivation. There are three new chapters developing whole-school behaviour policies, improving playground and lunchtime behaviour and combatting bullying.

Table of Contents

Effective behaviour management; pre-empting behaviour problems; reinforcing good behaviour; responding to behaviour problems; developing a whole-school behaviour policy; playtime and lunchtime; combatting bullying.
