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


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. However, behavior is complex so there is seldom one reason children don’t or cannot comply with our expectations. Research shows 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 occur. 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.


Join this paradigm-shifting webinar presented by author Dr. Angela Searcy to:

  • examine examples of implicit bias.
  • explore contextual elements, classroom variables, and potential bias within your programs and your practice.
  • learn about tools to help you identify implicit bias.

All sessions are 1.5 hours long and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
