Canadian and Australian Pre-Service Teachers' Use, Confidence and Success in Various Behaviour Management Strategies
Reupert, Andrea; Woodcock, Stuart
International Journal of Educational Research, v50 n5-6 p271-281 2011
The purpose of this study was twofold; first, to identify Australian and Canadian pre-service teachers' use, confidence and success in various behaviour management strategies, and second, to identify significant differences between the two cohorts. Pooled data indicated that pre-service teachers most frequently employ low level corrective strategies, such as non-verbal body language, rather than strategies that serve to prevent student misbehaviour. The strategies pre-service teachers report most frequently employing were also those they felt most confident in. Australian pre-service teachers employ rewards significantly more, while Canadian pre-service teachers utilise preventative and differentiation strategies significantly more. Differences might be accounted for by the timing of pre-service teachers' school practicum. Implications for teacher education programs and future research conclude the paper.
