When children exhibit challenging behaviors, the problem is often localized within the child. However, behavior is complex and seldom centers around one reason. Research shows that in order to gain a meaningful understanding of student behavior there must be a meaningful understanding of adult behavior and the context in which all these behaviors occur. This edWebinar looks beyond the child and exploring classroom management. Participants will analyze contextual elements, interactions, and classroom variables that might contribute to challenging behaviors.
This edWebinar will be of interest to preK through elementary teachers, librarians, and school leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
