Pushing Past Bias and Challenging Classroom Behaviors: Changing Children’s Behavior Starts With Changing Ourselves, by Dr. Angela Searcy
This webinar is hosted by Early Childhood Investigations
When children exhibit behaviors that are not compliant, early educators often label them “challenging.” But are they really? Teachers and administrators often jump to conclusions about the child or their family and community. However, behavior is complex so there is seldom one reason children don’t or cannot comply with our expectations. Research shows order to gain a meaningful understanding of children’s behavior there must be a meaningful understanding of adult bias and the context in which these behaviors occurs. This webinar will help you look beyond the child to the implicit bias, contextual elements, interactions, and classroom variables that might contribute to labeling behavior as challenging.
