Revised Behaviour and Learning Guide is now live

School leaders and teachers now have better information at their fingertips to help promote positive behaviour and learning.

A newly revised edition of the online Behaviour and Learning Guide has gone live on the Inclusive Education website to help teachers collaboratively problem solve and develop practical strategies for positive behaviour and learning.

The guide also offers guidance on building positive relationships and partnerships with students, families and colleagues and developing a safe and caring culture and climate that encourages access and participation in learning. 

The latest New Zealand and international research and literature are featured in the guide along with new information that deals with emotional wellbeing and positive mental health.  

The rewrite reflects Māori world views, and is underpinned by Universal Design for Learning – a framework that assists with the design of flexible, barrier-free learning options and supports. 

The online guide is a companion resource to Teaching for Positive Behaviour: supporting engagement, participation and learning which is available online and in print, with the revised Behaviour and Learning Guide enhancing the book’s content with multi-media demonstrations and practical examples for educators.

As well as teachers and principals, the Behaviour and Learning Guide supports resource teachers (learning and behaviour) in their work, and parents can also use it to initiate conversations with their children’s teachers.
