Teaching Emergent Bilingual Learners with Disabilities and Challenging Behaviors in Preschool
Brillante, Pamela; Nemeth, Karen N.
Journal of Multilingual Education Research, v7 Article 5 p43-58 2017
Challenging behaviors in young children can result from a variety of factors that may interact to make it difficult for teachers to find effective instructional solutions. The authors of this article provide an overview of research that focuses on understanding challenging behavior in young children. It describes a research-based model, the Pyramid model, intended to support the development of social competence in young children. Classroom practice suggestions with some vignettes are provided to illustrate how teachers may implement this model with children that experience challenging behaviors and ways in which their practice could be transformed. The article concludes with recommendations for teachers on different techniques they can use as proactive supports or interventions in order to prevent challenging behaviors from reoccurring in emergent bilingual preschoolers.
