It is strongly recommended to attend webinar 1 as a foundation for the webinars that follow.
Children learn language from sustained back-and-forth interactions with responsive adults. In this webinar we will think together about how the three steps of a Powerful Interaction create an optimal context for extending children’s language learning in ways that meet the language skills and interaction patterns of diverse learners. For CLASSers, we will utilize each of the CLASS Language Modeling indicators!
*Participants are welcome to study the book Powerful Interactions: How to Connect with Children to Extend Learning (Dombro, Jablon and Stetson) as a supplement to the webinars.
