In the second of three episodes, Paul continues his conversation with the world’s leading authority on behaviour management, Dr. Bill Rogers.
Bill Rogers is an education consultant. A teacher by profession, Bill now lectures widely on discipline and behaviour management issues; classroom management; stress and teaching; colleague support; developing peer-support programs for teachers and developing community-oriented policies for behaviour management, based on whole-school approaches.
He works in every area of education (primary, post-primary and tertiary) conducting in-service programs/seminars for teachers and support staff, lecturing widely at Colleges of Education, Universities and schools, working with parent groups and students in schools.
“…to resort to a kind of mental and psychological form of punishment with…isolation booths is just unspeakable.”
“When you’re leading for behaviour and learning, you’re trying to raise behaviour awareness.”
“[Consequences need to be] reasonable, related and respectful.”
“If children feel secure they are more likely to learn well in the formal aspects of schooling.”
