Having Meaningful Conversations with Children- Virtual Zoom Training
January 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
When adults engage children using meaningful conversations, you help to grow their language skills and improve their cognitive development. In this training session we will follow the Cox Campus videos series to learn about the TALK method to meaningful conversations. Tune in, Ask questions, Lift up language, and Keep it going.
Through this training you will have the opportunity to learn:
- How to incorporate complex vocabulary in conversations in a meaningful way
- How to connect with children and invite them into conversations
- How to adapt the TALK strategy to each child’s unique needs
This video series was created by Cox Campus and The Rollins Center for Language and Learning
