Bill Roger's Model Of Positive Behavior Leadership

Decent Essays
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. As a consequence, students realise that they should stop considering the teacher has respected them and has not forced upon them to behave in a particular way. This approach focuses on supporting students in taking control of their own behaviour. It is highly important to identify the problem in order to implement a solution at a later time. Gordon’s idea of meeting the needs of students, is in fact, everyone …show more content…
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

    14). This is later reinforced that “a positive attitude towards students is the most crucial component in becoming an inclusive teacher” (p. 114). Students can easily pick up on the negative attitude of the teacher and this may affect their learning. For instance, if a student finds that the teacher does not believe that he/she can complete a task or achieve high marks, they are more likely to give up or avoid completing the task to avoid failure. As a teacher, it is important to believe in the students and aspire them to do their best in order to achieve.…

    Students should feel comfortable asking questions and to see the teacher as someone that cares and that they can trust. Having a good rapport and managing students engagement is an important factor. I feel that a system of how a student would ask for help is a good idea when it is quiet time in the class, so they would not interrupt the class. For example, I would use a peg system with red- for help, yellow- have a question, blue- lost and green- good to…

    The goal of the study was clear; it wanted to mold those students into individuals who were able to fully communicate. Even though not everyone would agree with the rules Frances made in her class, the value of the idea still holds true. By hearing the way that students communicate, a teacher can better help them equip them with the skills to communicate. In a way, by hearing a student communicate and noticing struggles that they have as well as helping them realize their struggles by producing a set of rules for successful discourse, the teacher is bearing the load of the student. Together the student and teacher work together to fix what they heard.…

    Teachers need to be seen as someone that students can confide in. When students are comfortable enough to confide in the teacher this can sometimes break down those tough barriers that keep students from giving their full potential in the classroom. Setting the example and being a leader can also influence students to do the same outside the classroom which can improve the student 's behavior if they are having disciplinary problems. A teacher who supports students being different, not only when it comes to race or religion, but also in the field of how students learn will teach students that it is okay to be different which is helpful to learn at this stage to keep students from being aggravated with the progression they are making compared to other learners. Being able to teach to the students individually and not teaching to the test increases student confidence in the classroom.…

    Teachers can actively listen to their students by repeating back to students what we think they said and allowing them to clarify and further explain instead of telling them what they should have done and could do better. Active listening can help students deal with their strong feelings, understand their own emotions, articulate their concerns and facilitate problem solving. This approach keep the student responsibly but helps the relationship between the student and teacher, rather than prohibits it. Students are more willing to listen when they feel heard, understood and are not given a short answer that is supposed to fix all their…
