A drama teacher shares his behaviour management techniques for promoting good behaviour in a lesson which encourages students to move about and express emotion.

Simon Druker, a drama teacher at Bonus Pastor Catholic College in south east London, explains his approach to behaviour management in a drama class.

Simon operates a clear lesson structure, culminating each time in a performance. He talks about the importance of choosing the right material and building relationships with students over time.

While the students tackle the difficult and sensitive subject of child soldiers in Uganda, Simon keeps a keen eye on behaviour.
