  3. From Behaving to Belonging: The Inclusive Art of Supporting Students Who Challenge Us

    Challenging behaviour is one of the most significant issues educators face. Though it may seem radical to use words like love, compassion and heart when we talk about behaviour and discipline, the compassionate and heartfelt words, actions and strategies teachers employ in the classroom directly shape who students are and will become. But how can teaching from the heart translate into effective supports and practices for students who exhibit challenging behaviour? Julie Causton and Kate MacLeod detail how teachers can shift from a ‘behaviour management’ mindset (that punishes students for ‘bad’ behaviour or rewards students for ‘good’ or ‘compliant’ behaviour) to an approach that supports all students - even the most challenging ones - with kindness, creativity, acceptance and love.
