Teacher Talk Series

What You’ll Learn from Teacher Talk™

Delivered by Hanen-trained professionals who also offer the Learning Language and Loving It program, Teacher Talk is divided into three full-day training sessions:

Teacher Talk™ Training A: Encouraging Language Development in Early Childhood Settings

This training will show you how to use everyday conversations, play and daily routines to promote the communication and social development of all children, including those with language delays and those who are second language learners.

You’ll learn how to

  • Identify children’s conversational styles and the role teachers play in interactions
  • Implement six steps to following the child’s lead:  Observe, Wait and Listen, Be Face to Face, Imitate, Interpret, Comment, and Join in and Play
  • Help children become better conversation partners by using appropriate questions, comments and turn-taking cues
  • Use five important steps to ensure that no child is left out of the interaction during group activities
►Teacher Talk™ Training B: Let Language Lead the Way to Literacy

This training will discuss the important links between oral language development and literacy, and provide you with practical strategies for paving the way for children to read and write.

You’ll learn how to encourage and support literacy development by:

  • Helping children develop a positive attitude toward the use of print
  • Choosing books that match children’s interests and stages of development
  • Using book reading  as a time for interaction and conversation
  • Making print a natural and meaningful part of every day
►Teacher Talk™ Training C: Fostering Peer Interaction in Early Childhood Settings

This training will show you how to provide a physical and social environment that encourages peer interaction and creates many opportunities or successful interactions with other children.

You’ll learn how to encourage and support peer interaction by:

  • Making the most effective use of space in the classroom
  • Encouraging a variety of groupings for interaction
  • Providing appropriate materials and activities
  • Creating reasons for interaction and providing specific coaching 

Teacher Talk Trainers may offer the training series flexibly. Training A may be offered on its own, or in combination with Training B and/or C, and the trainings do not have to be held on consecutive days. However, because Training A is a prerequisite for both Trainings B and C, all Teacher Talk participants must attend Training A before attending the other training sessions.
