Written by Behaviour Management expert, Bill Rogers and his daughter and Early Years teacher, Elizabeth McPherson, this book explores behaviour management in the crucial early years.
Essential skills are explored in detail through a wide range of case studies and with specific focus on:
- challenging student behaviour
- positive discipline practice
- students with special behaviour needs
- how colleague support can help our day-to-day teaching
- anger management and safe restraint
- how to set up and maintain a whole-class behaviour agreement.
This book is packed with practical strategies, approaches and essential skills which are easy to access and written in Bill’s inimitable
style, including the idiosyncratic illustrations he uses in his training events in the UK, Europe and Australia. This book is an excellent publication
and I would highly recommend it for anyone working with young children in the 3-7 year age range.
We often think of behaviour management in terms of dealing with challenging behaviour, but Dr Rogers begins by looking at classroom organisation and whole-class strategies. Alongside the theory, he provides examples that create a much deeper understanding of exactly what works and what doesn’t.
