Teaching is one of the most challenging and demanding roles. Entering the classroom and teaching for the first time as a new teacher can be daunting. Managing student behaviour can be a cause of concern for many new teachers and can cause a great deal of anxiety. Behaviour management is an integral part of becoming a teacher. It underpins everything that is done in the classroom. Teaching a range of personalities from a variety of backgrounds can be exhausting and emotionally draining at times. It is essential that beginning teachers have a range of support mechanisms and systems that will help them succeed in the profession.
This book aims to equip teachers with some practical ideas to create a positive climate in the classroom. It also aims to give new teachers some evidence-based strategies that promote wellbeing for students.
