Aims and objectives

This unit prepares pre-service teachers to understand how children and young people display different behaviours within a learning environment and how to approach and negotiate these behaviours. They are introduced to the major perspectives of understanding and supporting behaviour and explore historical and contemporary theories and how these relate to principles, policies and practices. They explore the role and practice of external agencies and professionals in supporting children, young people, teachers and families. Pre-service teachers will be challenged to reflect upon their own belief system and how this relates to different contemporary approaches and models of behaviour management.

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Differentiate behaviours displayed by students in learning environments and formulate reasons for these behaviours using behavioural and educational theories
2. Critically analyse and apply appropriate theoretical frameworks and models for responding to a range of behaviours displayed in the learning environment.
3. Critically analyse different principles, policies and practices used for establishing and maintaining a productive learning environment.
4. Plan learning environments that adhere to positive models of behaviour management.
5. Create strategies for working inclusively and ethically with families, community and support agencies
6. Clarify the role of external agencies and professionals in supporting teachers, children and families.
