Cracking the Hard Class
In framing this book, Bill Rogers discusses `what changes' and `what stays the same' in teacher leadership and behaviour. Original chapters from well-known writers and practitioners set out current approaches in behaviour leadership, in terms of practical concerns about behaviour management and discipline. The emphasis on teacher leadership is intentional, as the authors believe that the kind of teacher leadership in a school significantly affects the effectiveness and humanity of discipline and management.
All the contributors have a teaching background and all are directly involved with schools, in research and consultancy. Bill Rogers works in classrooms with teachers, as a coach//mentor. Each chapter demonstrates a commitment to support classroom teachers with practical action research in areas such as:
- Teacher leadership
- Effective teaching
- Colleague support
- Discipline and behaviour management
- Working with students who show emotional-behavioural disorders.
This book will be useful to teachers and other education professionals interested in behaviour management, discipline and colleague support issues.
