Pushing Past Bias and Challenging Classroom Behaviors: Changing Children’s Behavior Starts With Changing Ourselves, by Dr. Angela Searcy

Welcome to Early Childhood Investigations, a webinar series produced by Engagement Strategies, LLC. This webinar is sponsored by ChildCare Education Institute.

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. Research shows in 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.
