Product Description

A safe and effective classroom is not the result of luck or magic. It is a consequence of reflection, careful planning, training, positive attitudes and systematic feedback from all those involved in the education of children. In other words, it is a function of thought and effort. Creating safe and effective classrooms reviews contemporary “best practice” related to various aspects of school safety and discipline.

Creating safe and effective classrooms firstly considers the significance and the application of human rights in the field of education. It then provides in-depth discussions of school safety, discipline and bullying. Lastly, it focuses on the creation of a classroom environment conducive to a culture of teaching and learning by providing guidelines for teacher leaders on aspects such as curriculum management, motivation and communication strategies, and self-development.

Contents include the following:

  • The relationship between rights and obligations
  • Duty of care
  • Dealing with violence, bullying and victimisation
  • Basic legal principles pertaining to disciplining learners
  • Examples of positive disciplinary actions
  • Classroom values, principles and rules
  • Guidelines for good classroom communication and for establishing harmonious relationships

Creating safe and effective classrooms is aimed at  educators, parents and other stakeholders in the education of children.
