A new edition of this book is available `All royalties from the sale of this book are donated to the charity World Vision for children's education programmes in South East Asia'. All teachers face similar issues of behaviour, from calling out, interrupting, inappropriate loudness, through to more disturbing bullying, violence and behaviour disorders. This book addresses the issue of challenging behaviour and behaviour disorders in schools. It shows how teachers - in a supportive team - have made a significant difference to their students in terms of behaviour, attitude, self-esteem and peer acceptance. Bill Rogers sets out the key principles of behaviour leadership drawn from the teachers' own accounts. Teachers spend a third of their working day with children. Their goodwill, energy and patience are sometimes stretched to the limit by some of the children they are called on to teach, manage and support. Some of the children we read of in this book are children whose family situation does not always support what schools seek to be and to do. There are sometimes disturbing reasons why these children are disruptive. But the teachers in this book never 're-victimise' the child. They know that behaviour is developed and learned, in context. Bill Rogers is a respected education consultant who travels frequently to the United Kingdom from Australia, to conduct INSET and seminars with schools and universities in the areas of behaviour management; discipline; effective teaching; stress management and teacher welfare. Bill's work is well known for his emphasis on practical approaches and skills, as well as his sensitivity to teachers' needs and concerns. How to Manage Children's Challenging Behaviour is essential reading for practising teachers at any level.
