Primary Certification Seminar Agenda

  • TAGteach Introduction: Who, What, Where, Why
  • TAGteach Bottom Line: The success of the learning environment lies with the teacher/leader.
  • TAGteach supplies tools to help the teacher/leader fulfill that responsibility.

Day One

  • Develop the ability to identify and begin from a learners “point of success”
  • Create and practice using the “focus funnel” to reduce language and increase understanding and compliance of directives
  • Design “value-added” directives that reduce learning time
  • Design directives that create confidence and fluency
  • Experience and practice using an audible marker
  • Create tag points that circumvent “poisoned cues” and engage your learner/staff
  • Change nag points into tag points
  • Incorporate the TAGteach triangle
  • Identify
  • Highlight
  • Reinforce
  • Create conditioned reinforces from almost anything
  • Create “self-regulated” reinforcement strategies
  • Practicals and interactive videos are used to compliment the Power Point presentation.
  • TAG Talk (and less of it)
  • How does this all work for and with you?

Day Two

  • Put into Practice
  • Much of Day 2 is dedicated to working on TAG plans and practicing the TAGteach approach as it pertains to the individual applications of attendees.
