WHAT IMPACT, IF ANY, CAN BEHAVIOUR SPECIFIC PRAISE HAVE ON THE CLASSROOM CLIMATE WITHIN A SECONDARY CLASSROOM?
Classroom management is the foundation for successful teaching with teachers having to ensure that learners are engaged in learning, build positive relationships with learners while effectively managing disruptive behaviours. BSP has been shown to support teachers in achieving this. This enquiry aimed to analyse the impact that the implementation of BSP could have within a secondary classroom, providing learner and teacher perspectives on the success of this. This enquiry was limited to two S3 Administration and IT classes. This action research project features both qualitative and quantitative research and used online questionnaires, focus groups and a teacher journal to collect data which was analysed to attempt to answer the research question.
