“If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.” -Ignacio Estrada
I have been spending these past couple weeks researching my inquiry on how to manage violent behaviours in the classroom and I have come to the conclusion that there are many different approaches depending on the root cause of the issue. My experience with violent behaviour in children have come from a wide range of situations whether that be in the classroom as a pre-service teacher, in the gym as a behaviour interventionist, or parent meetings as a person of rapport. From my own personal experiences and research, I have decided to discuss 3 main reasons for aggression within children:
- Complex Trauma
- Mental Illness
- Mental Disabilities
In each blog post I will be delving deep into each category, define them, outline strategies, and give resources. My goal is to shape my own understanding of classroom management and increase my ability to form an inclusive classroom.
