Classroom and Behavior Management
Monday, April 15
Bill Rogers is an education consultant. A teacher by profession, he now lectures widely on discipline and behavior management issues, classroom management, stress and teaching, colleague support, developing peer-support programs for teachers, and developing community-oriented policies for behavior management based on whole-school approaches.
Working in every area of education—primary, post-primary, and tertiary, Rogers conducts in-service programs and seminars for teachers and support staff, lectures at colleges of education, universities, and schools, and works with parent groups and students in schools.
Rogers is known especially for his commitment to a skills-based approach to discipline and behavior management and emphasis on a colleague-support focus across the school for the development and maintenance of positive behaviors within a rights, responsibility, rules focus.
He has authored many journal articles, contributed to magazines, and published books in Australia and the United Kingdom. In 1988, he was awarded a scholarship to the United Kingdom to research teachers stress; he lectured widely during that visit. He also consulted to the committee that drafted the Elton Report: Discipline in Schools (1989).
Prior to teaching Rogers was a parish minister for seven years in the western suburbs of Melbourne, including chaplaincy in hospitals and schools.
