Transforming Behaviour in the Classroom

Being able to effectively manage the behaviour in your classroom is one of the basic foundations of good teaching. However creating a positive productive learning environment is challenging as the causes of behavioural issues can be complex and difficult to identify. This book presents a solution-focused approach to behaviour management in primary and secondary schools, starting with the child and offering a flexible methodology and practical strategies for facilitating long-term positive behaviour. Key coverage includes: * An overview of main approaches to behaviour management drawing from educational theory and research * Case studies throughout the book exploring key strategies and issues * How to develop confidence in the classroom as a new teacher * Neuroscience and behaviour: what can we learn from recent scientific discoveries?

About the Author

Dr Geoffrey James PhD is an independent consultant with over 18 years of experience working with students as they go about changing their own sometimes challenging behaviour in schools. Geoff's solution-focused approach to behaviour management developed during his time in a pupil referral unit working as a behaviour support teacher. He was looking for an approach to students' behaviour that was more effective and somehow more human than the psychological behaviourism that dominated work. Geoff has taken the solution-focused approach into many situations to see how robust it is in the face of very different problems that confront people. He has supported individuals and teams with direct support and training in education, mental health, social work, management, alcohol and substance misuse and team building.


This is an important book for all those concerned with improving our schools. It is practical and positive and develops a new professional pathway to the solutions that all schools must find in their everyday life. Highly recommended. -- Professor Ivor Goodson This book provides an interesting and thought provoking approach to behaviour management and would be a very useful part of any behaviour toolkit or range of approaches for teachers new and old to try. -- Christine Smith Geoffrey James' book Transforming Behaviour in the Classroom provides a really sensible, evidenced based approach to getting the conditions for learning right. It's the kind of book I wished I'd had on my PGCE and in my NQT year - practical strategies to prepare, plan and teach for good behaviour in your classroom, backed up by real examples. -- Chris Hildrew
