Challenging Personalities

Description

A secondary NQT gets help from behaviour expert John Bayley on managing the behaviour of students with strong personalities who challenge her in the classroom.

NQT Amy Mayes sets a Year 10 media class the task of pitching their own Hollywood disaster movie, but some students fail to take the lesson seriously.

John's solution is to get Amy to practice more sharply defined ways of describing exactly what she would like students to do.

Later in the lesson Amy sends one of the disruptive students out of class and at the end of the lesson she lectures him on his behaviour.

Bayley suggests she could make this more effective by enabling the student to take more ownership of what she is saying.
