Full-Day Workshop

Seminar: LINDAMOOD-BELL SERIES - Talkies® Visualizing and Verbalizing for Language Comprehension and Expression

This course explores the sensory-cognitive processes basic to language comprehension and expression. One of the primary goals of the course is to make class members aware that there is a specific sensory-cognitive function basic to language comprehension and critical thinking. Class members will learn the role of concept imagery in oral language comprehension and oral language expression. Class members learn to develop concept imagery for all ages of students in one-to-one, small-group, and classroom settings. Study and supervised practice allows class members to learn Socratic questioning in "responding to the response" to develop sensory-cognitive functions, and integrate the steps into any curriculum, reading program, language arts program, and all content instruction. Information and techniques are gained through discussion, demonstration, video, reading, and supervised practice.

Talkies is for younger students or students with more severe language delays (close to non-verbal).
