'It's a pleasure to read such a well-considered, well-researched book which focuses on who we teach as a counterbalance to what we teach...[This text] provides a wealth of information and practical ideas for teachers. Roffey draws on her wide teaching experience for the case studies, teacher discussions and student exercises, and there are helpful activities in every chapter. Her work is well supported by references to research and she provides some excellent reading and resources for teachers on resiliency, peer support, emotional literacy and more.
A good resource to support students on the Foundation Degree by enabling them to consider different strategies and procedures for classroom development.
This book offers a range of good practice ideas for changing behaviour, but it is light on theory and research.
A very useful book exploring a vital aspect of education
For students to know about ways in changing behaviour. Having met Sue Roffey at an EY Conference I wanted her book. She is very relevant and practical.
This is a wonderful text that I have recommended to students on three courses (undergraduate and PGDE). It avoids simplistic assumptions about how to 'deal with' challenging behaviour in favour of promoting a view of how to understand challenging behaviour and its causes. It meshes well with the approach I take on my teaching courses, stressing the need for positive and nurturing classroom relationships as a precursor to effective learning and teaching.
This text is extremely accessible and offers a wealth of ideas and practical suggestions. The case studies supplied provide good examples that relate to the theory, and the questions for reflection and discussion are useful to work on independently or to set for group work.
An excellent book, demonstrating what schools need to do in order to put successful behaviour strategies in place to benefit the whole school.
Very clearly written text with very good case studies.
This is a very important book for any teacher to read. I wish my sons teachers at school had read this book. Important in understanding pupil behaviour.
This was a refreshing approach to an important topic. The book is well structured with many explanatory scenarios and case studies used to support the main text. Furthermore, the narrative is accompanied by useful and easy to implement activities. The reader is encouraged to engage with the subject matter and to share thinking with colleagues - discussion material and probing questions are offered throughout to assist in this. The treatment feels fresh and well grounded in contemporary research with useful references appearing at the end of each chapter.
Excellent use of case studies and a wide range of activities to embed learning.
“Teaching is about communication” Roffey, (2011). Most teachers face challenging behaviour in every day classrooms and settings. This book goes beyond presenting a holistic approach, including social and emotional issues. Sue Roffey offers excellent examples such as different teaching approaches, case studies and activities. Changing Behaviour in Schools is a must have book for everybody working with children and young people.
Very accessible text with good overview of current issues. Particularly like the section on restorative practice.
Excellent book, well laid out and informative.
Added book list!
This is very useful to teachers as it links well-being to the pupils' needs and how to analyse any problems by providing an assessment schedule to review possible contributory factors inflencing behaviour.
This is a highly 'readable' and informative book that gives the emphasis to putting strategies in place to manage behaviours rather than sanctions. It has proved to be a very poular text with a focus group of students this year.
Accessible and clearly written text that addresses the concerns and issues trainee teachers often raise in taught sessions about behaviour in the classroom. Will definitely include it on professional practice modules' reading lists.
The title offers a practical approach to important issues in relation to positive behaviours in schools and it complements a list of readers that the students are asked to read.
