What is your advice about? Relationships
1: Relationships are key to engaging students in positive behaviour. If you do not know the students they are not as likely to respond positively.
2: If you have a positive relationship with students, they are more likely to be ‘on-side’ when you want to talk to them about their behaviour.
3: If you show interest in students and who they are. They are more likely to be interested in what you have to say.
4: Never lose your temper, keep calm, addressing the behaviour not the child. Keep a positive (but firm) tone when required.
5: Being assertive and positive is possible, you can confront without being confrontational. This will be most successful when students know and trust you.
