Foundation of Unit: In the past, classroom management theory and learning have been heavily focussed on what to do when faced with student misbehaviour. In this unit we will still cover what we know works from the research with regards to corrective behaviour strategies, but we will also study how to prevent misbehaviour occurring in the first place. Preventative behaviour management is massively effective in not only preventing unrest and non-task behaviour, but also improving general student engagement and wellbeing. The foundation of this unit rest on this evidence base.
