Bill Roger’s model of ‘Positive Behaviour Leadership’ is a practical approach to behaviour management in the school setting. It is based on disciplinary practices that are related to rights, respect and responsibilities. The five principles of the PBL model are; “shared rights and responsibilities of everyone should be expressed as rules, confrontation and potential embarrassment should be minimised, confidence in students by offering choices, model respectful and dignified behaviour, and communicate expectations positively” (Lyons, G., Ford, M., & Kelly, A. M, 2011, p. 23). Roger emphasises how crucial these strategies are in minimising incongruous behaviour and guiding students to behave appropriately. Thus, Roger’s PBL model is extensively …show more content…
In my approach, teachers spend a fair amount of time on the needs of the students and the strategies they could use to meet them. Gordon also believes that teachers should cater for the need and spend more time hearing out what the student requires. The teacher presents an honest and keen interest to the student whether it be their concern, learning or personal issues, and according to Gordon, a child in this approach is given warmth and understood by the teacher. The effectiveness of communication is very important in Gordon’s approach as well mine. A student can act sensible and feel comfortable after continuous communication with the teacher whereby the teacher approaches the student. Gordon’s belief that teachers should not force upon students on how to behave relates to my approach of not being discourteous to students’ if they are disruptive and simply speak to them in a polite and agreeable manner for it to stop.

The purpose is to create an environment where all students feel they belong and are wanted and trusted in the learning environment. It is a communicative and acceptable environment. However, the uncertainty I have about my approach is that if a teacher responds to student’s disruptive behaviour in a polite manner and the student repeats doing it, then this strategy of my approach becomes less effective. One aspect of my approach was that students are engaged in learning to misbehave. Though, in the long term, if a student is not engaged in the learning there could be many factors to this, but is a difficult one to deal with considering students are clear on about the expectations within the classroom and the teacher dismisses punishment and the forcing of the student to behave. Partly we can see the effectiveness of aspects of my approach through the popularity of the theories mentioned even though the confusion still
