The Learning Renaissance

Understanding Student Behaviours



This article from Dr Richard Curwin on Edutopia rings true to me.

I remember  particularly disruptive child in an inner city secondary school who would drive me to distraction on a regular basis every lesson. I tried playing behavioural chess with him in which I countered his behaviour with a different reaction, all to limited avail.

He caught up with me many years later on social media and apologised for his behaviour, saying that he was testing me to see if I let him down like most adults did.

Sometimes Misbehavior Is Not What It Seems

Dazed and confused much of the time but convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans.
