The challenging student in the classroom presents two problems for the teacher. One is the impact the student’s challenging behavior is having on that student’s learning. The second is how that challenging behavior takes away from the learning of all the other students in the class. A teacher has only so much time and energy to present their curriculum. Any behaviors that require the teacher to address not related to that curriculum, takes away from their instruction. In this course, we will look at the root causes of challenging behavior and provide teachers with specific strategies and techniques to eliminate and/or minimize challenging behavior.
