Using Support Groups to Improve Behaviour


December 2007 | 128 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Based on material that has been successfully tried and tested in schools, this book provides an example of a whole school approach to setting up and managing support groups to improve the conduct of students with social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties.

Suitable for both primary and secondary schools, the strategies in the text align with the aims of the new Primary National Strategy and Key Stage 3 Strategy on behavior and attendance, as well as the SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) program and the Scottish "Curriculum for Excellence."

Using Support Groups to Improve Behaviour explains the aims of the support group approach, and gives practical guidelines that cover:

  • Planning for and setting up a support group
  • Involving parents in the process
  • Evaluating students' progress
  • The role of the support group leader
  • How this method supports the new initiatives in behavior and attendance throughout the UK

This resource and the accompanying CD-ROM present everything needed to implement the support group approach, along with resources to support staff development and accounts from students, staff, and parents. The book makes an ideal handbook for teachers, staff development coordinators, LEA behavior support teams, teacher educators, and preservice teachers.
