Tell Me More – Descriptive Teaching Techniques and Tools
“Tell Me More” will provide instructional tools to implement while developing teaching models for AAC users. Descriptive teaching poses inquiry phrasing that elicits responses that may be composed through use of core vocabulary but still challenges the academic content presented. Descriptive teaching helps teachers meet the demands of State standards/assessments while respecting the domain of AAC users.
