THE MUST-HAVE BEHAVIOUR MANAGEMENT BIBLE "Show the students the can of dog food, open it up and then eat from it. Offer it round the class to see if anyone else will have a taste..."* This is just one of Sue Cowley's infamous ways of captivating your students, seizing control and getting those buggers to behave! *(WARNING: Make sure you read the crucial preparation advice before putting this idea into practice!) Now in its fifth edition, Getting the Buggers to Behave remains a firm favourite with trainees, newly qualified teachers and experienced staff alike. The advice ranges from the basics of behaviour management to 'how to deal with the class from hell' and is applicable whether you are working in the early years, primary, secondary or further education with level specific examples in every chapter. The book covers preparing for your first meeting with a new group of students, developing your individual teaching style, creating a positive learning environment and working in really challenging schools. Sue is famed for the practical, honest and realistic nature of her advice, and all her ideas include case studies and anecdotes based on her years of experience working as a teacher and the stories and problems she has advised on 'agony aunt' style, for teachers of all levels. In this brand new edition, Sue takes a detailed look at the use of incentives for managing behaviour, how to implement a restorative justice approach in order to change children's behaviour and also identifies the ten most common forms of misbehaviour and how to deal with them. So, if your 2 year olds are ignoring you, your Year 11s are unmanageable, your tutor group is running riot or that unmentionable 9 year old is driving you round the bend then this is the book for you!
