Analysis: TDA Basics
 
This module is for teachers in tested grades to develop or firm up their foundational understanding of the skills that are taught in the area of analysis and how these skills are assessed on the PSSA with a TDA command. At the end of this module, participants will be able to define text-dependent analysis, understand why analysis matters, identify the components of a TDA command in the PSSA, and identify the skills needed for analysis.

Cultivating a STEM Mindset
 
STEM is more than just the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, it's a mindset. When teachers systematically implement STEM lessons into their curriculum, they are preparing students for a global economy. This course is designed to provide you with a snapshot of what a STEM mindset is, how to begin to shift students' mindsets to a more integrated approach, and how to begin to integrate lessons across content.

ABA Bundle: Essentials for Living, Discrete Trial Teaching, and Competent Learner Model
 
This bundle consists of 3 sessions that will be awarded 6 hours for Act 48 credit.

Essentials for Living
Essentials for Living (EFL) is a curriculum based on functional skills. EFL utilizes the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis as well as Skinner's verbal operants. EFL is meant to support the most complex learners in your program as well as learners who no longer make progress in other ABA-based programs.

What is Discrete Trial Teaching
Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT) is a research based practice paired with Applied Behavioral Analysis strategies. DTT employs errorless teaching with error correction. Programs implementing DTT often use the VB-MAPP to assess and teach students specific skills. This course will review DTT, errorless teaching, as well as the VB-MAPP. Furthermore, level of professional development and coaching support will be discussed as well.

Competent Learner Model (CLM)
The Competent Learner Model is supplemental curriculum based in research practices such as direct instruction, verbal behavior, and applied behavioral analysis. Through CLM, learners engage in 7 dynamic repertoires that are tied to Skinner's verbal operants. Assessment, curriculum, and professional development are discussed in this overview of CLM.
