Special Pre-Conference Session

CLASS:  Instructional Support Strategies
Wednesday, January 14, 2015

We are pleased to announce that SECA has partnered with Teachstone to provide this special pre-conference session as one of the training opportunities available through our 66nd annual conference.  

Effective Instructional Support interactions are key to fostering children’s cognitive growth and academic school readiness skills (Mashburn et al., 2008). For programs that are providing coaching or professional development to their teachers but want to do more enrichment around Instructional Support, we offer Instructional Support Strategies. This 1-day program teaches education managers, coaches, and mentors research-based strategies they can use with teachers to boost Instructional Support.

During this training you will

  • Gain concrete strategies for helping teachers improve their Instructional Support interactions.
  • Deepen your understanding of Instructional Support interactions.
  • Learn directly from Teachstone’s CLASS experts how to increase children’s cognitive and language abilities.
  • Discover  how to apply what you’ve learned to the professional development you provide to teachers.


Registration has now closed for this special event.
