Narrative Assessment With Cultural Applications
Format(s): Audio CD and Manual, Streaming Audio
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
This program explores mechanisms for assessing narrative comprehension and production that can be practically implemented in schools—and that can be adapted to the needs of children from different backgrounds and applied to culturally relevant texts and content. Narratives provide a functional context and purpose for addressing and integrating the language components. Therefore, to develop appropriate, effective language interventions, it is essential to adequately assess child narrative skills, ensuring that the assessment is relevant to children from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Participants will learn how to view narrative assessments and adapt or select assessments for children with cultural and linguistic differences.

Increasing Oral and Literate Language Skills of Children in Poverty
Format(s): DVD and Manual, Streaming Video
CEUs: 0.4
4.0
This session will discuss the effects of poverty on low-socioeconomic-status (SES) children and investigate whether academic underachievement is caused by language impairment, environmental factors, or a combination of both. In order to differentiate language impairment from language difference based on environmental factors, participants will learn how to get away from knowledge-based testing and conduct dynamic assessment of information processing skills. We will address the issue of building oral and literate vocabulary skills in low-SES children and discuss how to build executive functioning skills as well. Increasing academic achievement and helping students in poverty meet new Common Core State Standards in language will be emphasized.
