Classroom Management Strategies for Young Children with Challenging Behavior within Early Childhood Settings
Jolivette, Kristine; Steed, Elizabeth A.
NHSA Dialog, v13 n3 p198-213 2010
Many preschool, Head Start, and kindergarten educators of young children express concern about the number of children who exhibit frequent challenging behaviors and report that managing these behaviors is difficult within these classrooms. This article describes research-based strategies with practical applications that can be used as part of classroom management practices in settings with young children to improve children's social skills and decrease challenging behaviors. These strategies also are discussed in the context of program-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports. Finally, training opportunities and online resources are provided for teachers to continue their professional development regarding classroom management. (Contains 4 tables.)
