Well-managed Classroom by Michele Hensley

Book Description

How can the school experience be humanised so that students feel connected, valued and motivated to learn and achieve? How can the school environment be improved so that teachers and staff feel confident, respected and safe? "The Well-Managed Classroom" can show you how to overhaul or enhance the social climate and build a true "community" in your school. The authors describe the Girls and Boys Town Education Model, a school-based intervention strategy that emphasises behaviour management practices, relationship-building techniques and social skills instruction. It offers you the structure and strategies needed to reduce disruptive behaviour and empower students with self-management skills.The Model has been implemented in hundreds of schools and research shows that in classrooms where the Model is implemented fully, more students comply with teacher discipline and stay academically engaged while referrals to the head teacher and student exclusion days decline. The benefits of social skills instruction, coupled with proactive classroom management (having rules, procedures and consistent consequences) cannot be underestimated. When students are motivated to learn, when they feel good about the classroom environment and the relationships they have with teachers and staff, when they can manage themselves and accept responsibility for their behaviour, and when they feel empowered to improve, only then can you effectively teach and students truly learn.
