Behavior

Presenter(s): Ann E. Boehm, PhD

To learn the skills and concepts presented in the classroom, children must pay attention, register and assign meaning to information they see and hear, and store information in memory. The transition from infancy to early childhood is associated with increased proficiency in tasks requiring attention, working memory, and cognitive flexibility, all of which help to predict rate of learning. This one-hour webinar will describe cognitive development in young children. The presenter will use sample data to discuss and show the relationship between cognitive abilities and learning.

Traditional exclusionary disciplinary actions negatively impact all students. Unfortunately, these practices are most often used with students who can least afford to miss out on the instructional process, such as minorities, economically disadvantaged students, and students served in special education. This presentation uses the evaluation of a MTSS program to illustrate a systemic approach to reducing disciplinary actions, including identifying implicit bias, applying restorative justice, and integrating dispositional discipline data in a school’s data-driven decision-making process.

As educators reengage with students, information about their behavioral strengths and areas of need play an important role in the decision-making process used with an MTSS framework. This presentation examines how using self-report behavioral screening allows students to convey the impact of this crisis has on their emotions, behaviors, and mental health. It then discusses how a large school district used this information to guide a well-supported reintegration.
