|ABIGAIL B. CALKIN (Calkin Consulting Center), JOHN W. ESHLEMAN (The Chicago School of Professional Psychology), KERRI K. MILYKO (University of Nevada, Reno), HENRY S. PENNYPACKER (University of Florida), JESUS ROSALES-RUIZ (University of North Texas)
|Description: This workshop will teach the steps of precision teaching with particular emphasis on reading and charting human performance on a standard celeration chart (SCC). Participants will learn: to write precise performance statements (pinpointing), the three important dimensions of behavior to monitor, the features of the SCC, standard charting conventions, and how to analyze performance on the chart to assist in making data-based decisions. The instructors will draw from long and varied histories of success using the SCC in a range of settings to illustrate key concepts taught in the workshop. Examples from university teaching, educational intervention with special needs and regular education students, and the monitoring of private events will be used. Participants will receive a copy of the Handbook of the Standard Celeration Chart, all materials used in the workshop, and a CD containing selected articles and an electronic version of the SCC.
|Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to do the following:
1. write precise performance statements (pinpointing);
2. read performance data charted on a SCC;
3. chart performance data charted on a SCC;
4. describe data on a SCC in terms of its frequency, celeration, and bounce;
5. describe change in performance using SCC change terminology;
6. describe appropriate data-based change decisions.
|Activities: Applying principles derived from behavior analysis of well-designed instruction, our world-class group of workshop instructors will use a range of activities to ensure participants learn the skills targeted in the objectives. Participants will engage in choral responding and paced practice, timed practice on key concepts and skills, and both small and large group discussions.
|Audience: Anyone seeking an introduction (or refresher) to precision teaching and standard celeration charting, including persons interested in using SCCs to improve their teaching or clinical practice and individuals planning to take the BACB examination.
