EDUP2033: Supporting Behaviour and Well-being

Teachers, parents, school authorities and the general community have become increasingly concerned with the support of student behaviour in our schools. In the past, school discipline has depended on a system of strong teacher control and expected student compliance. With the move towards inclusion of all students in general education classrooms, including those with behaviour disorders, there is a need for all teachers to gain skills in the effective support of behaviour. This unit is designed to investigate the techniques and procedures, developed from sound research and theory, teachers can use to be proactive in their support of student behaviour.
