It is the dominant kind of discipline mechanism in some schools, and pupils expect to be imposed upon and dominated by a strong, sometimes aggressive adult. But what happens if you are part of the majority who just can’t do it like that? If teachers cannot overpower a difficult situation with a powerful character display of energy and physical domination, they can often get boxed into a corner. Tricky situations include a group of youngsters posturing, jostling and cussing each other in the corridor, a classroom where there is a lot of high-energy restless behaviour or when many of the pupils are poorly motivated and have low academic skills.

It is probably best not to specify what they are as you could be setting yourself up for actions you will find difficult to take. 10 Avoid shouting, pointing and attempting to dominate. It is a high-risk strategy in a confrontation because you may lose. 11 Remember that pupils will be reading your body language rather than listening closely to what you say. If you are unconvincingly macho, your body language will be hunched, tight, crumpled and thus you are defeated in some way before you start to assert yourself.

The rage has burned up an incredible amount of the body’s energy and the person is left feeling flat, negative and depressed. It is only at this stage that the angry pupil may be able to listen to a rational appraisal of what has happened. It is only now that the angry person may be calm enough to express the feelings that took them into their earlier rage in a sensible way.
