Informing the Implementation of School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support in Singapore Preschools

posted on 02.05.2017, 02:43 authored by LILY HUI SING LAU
This thesis sought to inform the implementation of School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) in Singapore preschools. Findings indicated that SWPBS implementation is likely to be perceived as needed by teachers, and that there is a need to focus on training teachers in SWPBS primary tier classroom management practices when SWPBS is implemented. Additionally, the Classroom Check-Up consultation model was shown to be a promising coaching model to be included in SWPBS training. A major contribution of this thesis to the field of classroom management in Singapore early childhood settings is in providing information for the development of adequate professional development for teachers.
