What is the most effective way of managing pupils' behaviour?

The effective management of pupils' behaviour has long been a principle concern, not only for classroom teachers, but for all involved with the management of schools. Finding ways of motivating students, preventing disruption, whilst developing positive relationships, can be difficult to implement. Roland Chaplain argues that a multilevel approach is the key to coping with the diverse pressures of teaching and managing behaviour. This approach recognises the importance of management on individual as well as whole school levels, and not just in terms of teacher-student relationships.

This well-organised and thoroughly researched book handles a variety of crucial issues with clarity and vision. A range of topics are discussed in detail, including:

* teachers' personal development
* whole-school level management and effective strategies to anticipate and eliminate minor disruption
* classroom-level management which sets out effective routines designed to promote learning and minimise disruption
* individual assessment and intervention with students who have emotional or behavioural problems.

The book is enhanced throughout with evidence from contemporary research carried out by teachers and young people, which is used to support the advice and guidance offered. Each chapter includes thought-provoking activities and questions which encourage the reader to evaluate and reflect on their own practice. Teachers, student teachers, and headteachers will find this an indispensable guide.
