Behaviour Tip #1 – Listen

by | Jul 15, 2020 | Behaviour, Classroom Practice, Inclusion, SEMH, Teenagers | 0 comments

I recently got invited to contribute to #Eduteachertips channel on YouTube.

It’s a channel curated by Sarah Mullin, author of What they didn’t teach me on my PGCE.

I was asked to share a top tip for teachers and trainee teachers. 

My response was this  – Listen.

If we don’t listen we cannot understand what challenges a pupil might be facing.

If we do not understand we cannot adapt our learning.

If we don’t adapt our learning, they will be unable to access the work.

This results in very little learning taking place.

Listening can be a miraculous, preventative cure for what otherwise can be termed ‘bad behaviour.’

Watch the video to find out more.
