#7 Share and support your colleagues
Behaviour management is most effective when it is collective (like many aspects of teaching).
Share your behaviour management challenges with your colleagues. Ask them to support you by reinforcing your sanction or message. Support your colleagues too. If you have a good relationship with a particular student then this can be really powerful “Okay, Ben, tell me what happened in Mrs. Richardson’s class yesterday. I was so surprised when I heard about it.”
#8 Finally, use subtle reinforcement
This is very powerful and is a long-term strategy that schools and individuals can use to create massive change in their pupils (I recommend it to Ninestiles school).
