Is low level disruption frustrating your students’ progress?

Are you fed up that your teaching time being lost to dealing with student ‘off task’ behaviour?

Are you disillusioned with a ‘one size fits all’ approach to behaviour management?

Low-level disruption is the bane of the school teacher’s working life. This course will offer realistic solutions that have been proven to work for keeping students on task and minimising costly low-level disruption. We will engage with six methodologies to prevent hundreds of hours being wasted by students' off-task behaviour. This isn’t a behaviour management course that sells just a single way of dealing with all cases of low-level disruption. Quite the opposite, it will provide a variety of solutions to low-level disruption that will be demonstrated and teachers can reflect upon which technique works for them.

Evidence underpinning this approach

This Course Aims to:

  • Explore the six major strategies used to reduce low-level disruption
  • Consider the advantages and disadvantages of each system
  • Learn how to tailor each strategy to the way you teach
  • Provide a wealth of behaviour management tips that you could use tomorrow 
How users/participants can evaluate success
