Behaviour

Discussion in 'Behaviour' started by butforthegraceofgod, Jun 19, 2011.

  1. So how does this work then? Teachers struggle with behaviour in their
    lessons (much of it low level disruption and a lack of willingness to
    focus), OFSTED arrive for a few days and most students demonstrate that
    they do have an awareness of how to behave properly, OFSTED compliment
    the behaviour of the students in their report, students believe their
    behaviour on a day to day basis is correct and they revert to "normal"
    practices. Schools cannot show OFSTED was is really happening for fear
    of a negative report. However, whilst Teaching may be"good", learning may
    not be. Why do they think this is? Perhaps a fly on the wall method
    would reflect a more realistic picture of what life is really like?

  3. Truly in the school am currently working as an assistance teacher i do have challenge with students behaviour when learning is in progress and so often a times you see your self struggling with the students attitude toward learning despite the application of school/class behavioural rules . My question is ,which other method can you advice a teacher to use.Thank you

    I know that there are pros and cons to any method of inspection, but this is one of the reasons I would tend to favour the surprise inspection- let all schools be judged as they are found, and then there can be no way of disguising the levels of behaviour.
