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

This course explores the sensory-cognitive processes basic to language comprehension and critical thinking. One of the primary goals of the course is to make class members aware that concept imagery is the specific sensory-cognitive function basic to language comprehension and critical thinking. Class members will learn the role of concept imagery in: 1) reading comprehension, 2) oral language comprehension, 3) following oral directions, 4) critical thinking, 5) oral language expression, and 6) written 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.

* Fees include a complete program kit worth about USD500
