[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]
In this webinar I will introduce participants to two key protocols for designing effective instruction: component-composite analysis and concept analysis. These procedures are vital when pre-existing, research-based programs are not available to teach your learners important instructional objectives. For example, no research-based programs currently exist to teach vocabulary or written composition effectively to elementary and middle school students. For students with disabilities, while VB-MAPP provides an normative analysis and sequence for language assessment, no effective program exists to teach them. Component-composite analysis procedures break down higher level, real-world, composite performances into their components and tool skills, which guide the teacher to the appropriate place to begin instruction based on the learner’s entering behavior. I will provide many examples of component-composite analysis, and identify key areas for completing component-composite analyses in reading, writing and math. Concept analysis procedures identify the critical and variable features of a concept, which in turn provide a prescription of the range of examples and close-in non-examples you will need to teach and assess a concept.

Learning​ ​Objectives:

1. When presented with component-composite analyses, participants will be able to identify those that are completed correctly, and will be able to edit incorrect examples to make them correct.
2. Participants will complete a component-composite analysis of one or more learning objectives that they currently teach.
3. When presented with a list of instructional tasks, participants will be able to identify those that illustrate conceptual behavior.
4. Learners will be able to describe 7 steps for teaching a concept (conceptual behavior).
