Bordesley Green Girls' School

Us or them - who is more disruptive in the classroom

Session details

"Moments of disruption in the classroom are inevitable."

Be it the teacher whispering in the corner to the TA, to the peeping round the door of another colleagues lesson, or to the teacher choosing to adopt a slightly different method from the norm.

As much as we as teachers may feel we need to solve the problem of the disruptive student, it may be time to start thinking about solutions to our own disruptiveness.

This session will be an opportunity to evaluate our own behaviour in the classroom and see how it might affect student behaviour.
