Interactions for promoting learning, prompting teacher reflection, and promoting intentional teaching.

Day One will review the steps to creating Powerful Interactions and strategies for using interactions to promote learning opportunities for preschool children, including children with disabilities.
On Day Two, participants will have an opportunity to share experiences with using Powerful Interactions in classroom settings and explore additional strategies for scaffolding learning, extending and expanding learning opportunities.
