Trainee teachers continue to alert their tutors about their wish to explore specific pupil behaviours. They have indicated to us the value that they see in being able to discuss particular incidents with their tutors or mentors, and with their fellow trainees. They also state that there are benefits in being able to ‘practice' their responses to particular classroom events, in order that they can gain at least some insight into how they might react in a given situation.

In response to this Behaviour4Learning have developed a set of classroom ‘scenarios', each of which approximates to a classroom event which teachers will probably have encountered at some point during their career. The scenarios have been identified by trainee teachers, as being those which they feel are the key areas that they want information about.

The ‘scenario approach' is not a ‘behaviour curriculum'. It should be seen by those who use it as a flexible resource, which can be used according to the needs or requirements of a given situation.

Each of the scenarios described in this collection encourage a particular way of working. This will be familiar to most tutors and mentors. It involves a process of cooperative problem-solving, shared learning and critical reflection.

Moreover, these tutor and mentor notes are not intended to be prescriptive. They incorporate a recognition that many involved in training teachers (whether in schools or institutions of higher education) have significant practical experience and theoretical knowledge in the field of behaviour management. In these instances they should be regarded as an additional resource or aide-memoire.

For those tutors and mentors who might be new to teacher education, these scenarios can provide the basis for raising the awareness of trainees about the importance of creating an effective learning climate in their classroom, and the various components involved in doing this.

There are currently 26 scenarios. Each contains a number of slides (usually between 8-10), which take users through aspects of each behaviour being considered. All of the scenarios contain links to additional materials, available freely on the Behaviour4Learning website.

These scenarios are copyright-free. Tutors and mentors may adapt them or customise them for their own institutional or personal needs. We would be grateful in such instances, however, if Behaviour4Learning could be acknowledged in any adapted presentations.
