5. Model as a MASTER PAL - Part 2

Program: Professional Development

Audience: SLPs, Teachers, Paraprofessionals using AAC

Dates: 3/2/2020

Starting Soon
Model as a MASTER PAL is a series of training modules developed by Tabi Jones-Wohleber. According to Tabi, "Model as a MASTER PAL" was developed to help shape behaviors and belief systems of communication partners supporting individuals who use AAC. It was developed from the premise that:

1. AAC implementation is not intuitive 2. communication is not compliance.

This training series assumes topics related to core vocabulary instruction and explicit creation of communication opportunities have already been covered, and communication partners require additional information to improve the effectiveness of implementation.

The structure of this training series lends itself to delivery over time for ongoing discussion and support related to AAC implementation. It emphasizes that modeling language with AAC is the communication partners responsibility (full stop!

This workshop will cover the following topics: Time, (Wait Time, Think Time, and Time for Language to Develop), Engage Naturally, Response Not Required, and Presume Potential.

Dates: 5/13/2020

"Everyone deserves a balanced and healthy diet." ~Tier 1 Instruction and Assessment for All

Frequent testing does not improve student learning outcomes any more than frequent weigh-ins improve health. When districts, schools, and teachers develop a healthy instruction and assessment system, everyone benefits! Administrators and mental health professionals have fewer fires to put out, teachers have a strong sense of how to help their students learn, and students have a clear picture of their strengths and a pathway for improving their performance.

"Looks like you have a second degree burn. Let's get this covered up so you don't get an infection." ~Tier 2 Instructional Intervention and Assessment

When students are struggling, what instructional and assessment steps can you take to turbocharge a student's learning so they can catch up to their peers? We can borrow from first responder protocols and apply these lessons to our instruction and assessment. In particular, we will learn about how to use state test question stems to build supportive classroom formative assessments in ELA and math that are aligned to the Next Generation Learning Standards.

"Annie, Annie, are you OK? Call 9-1-1!"~Tier 3 Instructional Intervention and Assessment

When students are in crisis, it is important to provide immediate and critical learning and social-emotional supports. Discover how lessons from the ER apply to students who need intensive services.

Please join us for a day jam-packed with actionable steps to improve your instruction and assessment.
