An NQT learns about managing behaviour fairly in a drama class John Bayley helps an NQT think about the behaviour management involved in treating students fairly from a new perspective. 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.
