The "Teaching Pyramid": A Model for the Implementation of Classroom Practices within a Program-Wide Approach to Behavior Support
Hemmeter, Mary Louise; Fox, Lise
NHSA Dialog, v12 n2 p133-147 2009
The "Teaching Pyramid" (Fox, Dunlap, Hemmeter, Joseph, & Strain, 2003) is a framework for organizing evidence-based practices for promoting social-emotional development and preventing and addressing challenging behavior in preschool programs. In this article, we briefly describe the "Teaching Pyramid" as a framework for implementing effective practices in the context of a program-wide approach to behavior support. We describe a set of training materials and a fidelity measurement tool and discuss how they may be used to support teachers in implementing new instructional approaches with fidelity. Finally, we discuss other supports that teachers will need to implement the "Teaching Pyramid" practices and future research that is needed in this area. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
