Getting the Buggers to Behave

Getting the Buggers to Behave : The must-have behaviour management bible

Sue Cowley's bestselling behaviour guide. Essential reading for all teachers in all schools.

'Show the students the can of dog food, open it up and then eat from it. Offer it round the class to see if anyone else will have a taste...'*

This is just one of Sue Cowley's infamous ways of captivating your students, seizing control and getting that unruly class to behave! *(WARNING: Make sure you read the crucial preparation advice before putting this idea into practice!)

Now in its fifth edition, Getting the Buggers to Behave remains a firm favourite with trainees, newly qualified teachers and experienced staff alike. The advice ranges from the basics of behaviour management to how to deal with the class from hell and is applicable whether you are working in the early years, primary, secondary or further education, with level-specific examples in every chapter. The book covers preparing for your first meeting with a new group of students, developing your individual teaching style, creating a positive learning environment and working in really challenging schools. Sue is famed for the practical, honest and realistic nature of her advice, and all her ideas include case studies and anecdotes based on her years of experience working as a teacher and the stories and problems she has advised on 'agony aunt' style.

In this brand new edition, Sue takes a detailed look at the use of incentives for managing behaviour, considers how to implement a restorative justice approach in order to change children's behaviour and also identifies the ten most common forms of misbehaviour and how to deal with them.

So, if your two-year-olds are ignoring you, your Year 11s are unmanageable, your tutor group is running riot or that unmentionable nine-year-old is driving you round the bend then this is the book for you!
