Addressing Challenging Behaviors - Complete Set

Challenging behaviour is one of the biggest issues early childhood educators face every day. Most often these behaviours are caused by challenges presented by the social and physical environment, yet often the approach is to "fix" the child rather than "fix" the factors that contribute to the behaviour. This Turn-Key training program will provide the knowledge base and practical strategies teachers need to strive to minimize challenging behaviour in the classroom.

This innovative, comprehensive ten-lesson video course helps teachers minimise challenging behaviour by promoting these positive classroom practices:

• Creating a well-designed physical environment
• Implementing a child-focused curriculum
• Helping children with problem solving skills
• Planning a predictable, well-paced day
• Fostering relationship-building

The complete set includes:
• 50 video presentations
• Insights from 53 experts in the field
• Real-life interactions gathered from classrooms across the country
• Learning objectives and reflection questions
• Extension activities and additional resources
• Closed captioning

Are These Your Glasses?

Author(s): Gavin McCormack (click on the author's name for more titles)

Are These Your Glasses? tells the tale of, Sergio, a lonely penguin who is faced with many hurdles as he grows up. Sergio is a champion against bullying. With his father as a guide, he learns some valuable lessons.These lessons help him to show great determination and strength as he tries to find true friendship.

The book has been designed to inspire deep conversations within the classroom and home about what it feels like to be excluded. It explains how we can overcome bullying with care and love.

The story of Sergio has the potential to educate children on a variety of levels. It inspires deep conversations about what it feels like to be excluded from a group and teaches children that the gift of kindness is the greatest gift of all.

As Sergio embarks on his quest for love, the sky ‘Aurora Australis’ changes its colour depending on his emotional state. This should allow those children who find it difficult to express their emotions in words to relate to Sergio’s situation. The book has a strong moral focus with many fine details and inferential clues within the beautiful illustrations which can be great discussion starters with children. And to top it all off, it has a beautiful ending.

The book is supported by detailed guides for parents and educators to assist them to extend the learning with the children in their care.

He decided to write this book to eradicate social exclusion in primary schools and to educate young people about the long-term effects of bullying and exclusion.
