Description

This session starts from 13:15 to 15:45

Why poor student behaviour is rarely an active choice - understanding the concept of lagging skills and different internal motivations

At a time when permanent exclusions are at an all-time high, this is an opportunity to look more closely at some of the aspects which may be influencing the behaviour of students who act up and act out.

This session intends to shine a light on some of the ways in which certain children cannot help failing in the present school system, and how a deeper awareness of our own skills and challenges can help them improve their outcomes .

Drawing on a basic understanding of the limbic brain, participants’ own experiences, and the work of Dr Ross Greene (amongst others), we will explore some of the following concepts

  • that some children lack (emotional) skills which we are assuming they have

  • what disruptive students might be trying to avoid feeling

  • the surprising way empathy can help de-escalate situations

  • why it’s important for teachers to discern their own triggers and assumptions

The premise is that, if we can identify certain ‘environmental’ triggers, we may then be able to adjust our expectations and shift our own attitudes, language, or classroom behaviours in ways which benefit everybody.

The session is suitable for both primary and secondary school teachers.
