Term Definition
behaviour management

a term used to refer to the approaches systematically used by teachers to control and shape learners' behaviour. It is mostly associated with establishing an effective environment for learning but because of some of the social expectations of schooling teachers especially in the early years are expected to teach behaviour in the sense of enabling and supporting children to act in socially accepted ways. It is a term seen as more appropriate than discipline but recently it has also been questioned because of its association with dubious social practices such asconditioning and manipulation.
