CLASSROOM INTERVENTIONS TO IMPROVE BEHAVIOUR

CONTROLLING NOISE AND ASSISTING STUDENTS TO FOLLOW DIRECTION. 

To manage our classroom better, it is important to understand how behavioural modification techniques work and can assist in promoting positive behaviours.  Without proper guidelines or directions, students could become unsettled quickly and the classroom experience can descend into chaos.  Disruptive behaviours many times can be managed from the moment the student shows up at the classroom door or from the time they enter.  For this to happen though, classroom teachers must be prepared with various strategies and techniques to treat with problem behaviour.  Here you will gain an understanding of how students' behaviour can be influenced, by you taking charge from the get go.
