It's Not Fair



John Bayley helps an NQT think about the behaviour management involved in treating students fairly from a new perspective, in a Year 10 drama class.

NQT, Siobhan Croker, is worried about treating students fairly but she takes over 10 minutes to resolve a minor dispute that breaks out in a Year 10 drama lesson.

John Bayley closely observes video footage of the lesson with Siobhan to explore ways she could use assertive language techniques to close down petty student disputes quickly and fairly.

John also challenges Siobhan to rethink her perceptions of fairness: is fairness about dealing with individual student issues at all times or is there ever a time when the greater good needs to be considered?
