Why are you shouting at us?

by Phil Beadle, John Murphy

Why are you shouting at us? Synopsis

In their witty and very practical book, Phil Beadle and John Murphy guide teachers through the dos and don'ts of behaviour management based on their decades of experience teaching in the most challenging schools. They highlight the importance of managing your own behaviour, as well as really understanding that of your students, and provide practical strategies for embedding positive behaviour management techniques into teaching practice. Self-assessment questionnaires throughout the book prompt the reader to pause and reflect, while the authors offer encouragement and support, using humorous and often candidly honest anecdotes based on their own teaching experience. Why are you shouting at us? is essential reading for anyone preparing to work in a challenging school as well as for any teacher who wants to improve their behaviour management skills.

Why are you shouting at us? Press Reviews

[Phil Beadle] refuses to accept students' backgrounds as an excuse for underachievement. * Evening Standard * I have read many behaviour management books which tell the reader how to react to situations and quite often advocate methods likely to further inflame it. This book is excitingly different! It helps the reader identify their own personal triggers and responses to poor behaviour and urges reflection. A light has been turned on in the world of behaviour management. * Sir Iain Hall, CEO, Great Schools for All Children * ...provides an invaluable handbook for managing behaviour in challenging schools. By starting with the needs of the learner and the values of the teacher / school, John Murphy and Phil Beadle transcend the usual compendium of tips and techniques, instead building an approach that is rooted in humanity and communicated with humour. * Heath Monk, Chief Executive, Future Leaders * Those who know the authors would expect any work of theirs to be insightful, practical, straight talking and funny. This book is all of those and more. It is packed with wisdom, common sense and ideas. Whether you are new to teaching or have many years experience there are great lessons to be learned in this book. It will be hugely influential. * Sir John Rowling, Director, The PIXL Club * ...places teacher behaviour at the heart of pupil behaviour. Spot on. * Paul Dix, Lead Trainer, Pivotal Education. * This book is full of the passion of the authors... I would recommend this to all teachers. * TES *
