Lesson Summary

It’s no secret that disruptive behaviour impacts student learning and takes time away from teaching our content. However, it can feel like teachers have been lied to about just how much of their work will be about behaviour. So, are we looking at student behaviour in the right way? Do we know how to support students to change and experience growth? In this course, we will explore ways we can teach students about their behaviour, ways we can work alongside them while they develop their skills, and how we can win back some of our teaching time.

You will learn:

  • How to define and recognise disruptive behaviour
  • Why we need to treat behaviour as something to be learnt and developed
  • Strategies you can use to support students to develop their social and behavioural skills

Course time:

About 30 to 45 minutes - perfect for after work or during a spare period. You will have ongoing access via your user dashboard.

Alignment to the Australian Professional Teacher Standards::

This course is mapped to the following Australian Professional Teacher Standards (AITSL). Your completion can be logged as elective PD hours with your state's teaching regulatory authority.
