When addressing challenging behavior, it is important for teachers to understand students’ culture and background.

If you select Olivia  for this week’s prompt, discuss the behaviors of impulsivity or addressing her peers negatively.

For your discussion prompt, choose Olivia or Jose and address the following questions:

· How will you approach the situation differently with what you learned about the cultural backgrounds of Jose and Olivia?

· What can you do to better support Olivia or Jose in the classroom and the child’s parents at home?
