Narrating Behavior: Deconstructing the translation and mentoring practices for emerging teachers

This session discusses the approaches and methods that secondary educators enact to support preservice teachers understanding of “challenging” behavior.  It examines the ways these educators challenge dominant discourses about behavior and how supporting behavior gets translated to emerging teachers that they are mentoring, particularly examining how they adopt, refine, and challenge practices that typically narrate behavior within secondary urban schools.
