Professional Development


This 5-part series examines the connections between spatial (geographic) thinking and its integration with the disciplines of history, civics, and economics using the context of Michigan studies (post-statehood) and a regional approach of fundamental concepts organized by topic or issue. Comprehensive curricular units that include research-based instructional strategies for teaching spatial thinking through the Arc of Inquiry, hands-on activities, literacy strategies, and best practices in both formative and summative assessment will be modeled at each session.As a result of the incorporation of disciplinary specific, critical thinking skills brought about by the design of The C3 Framework, this curriculum and accompanying professional development network are the best tools to assist 3rd and 4th grade social studies teachers in developing inquiry-based instructional units.

Professional Development

The VB-MAPP is a criterion-referenced assessment tool, curriculum guide, and skill tracking system that is designed for children with autism, and other individuals who demonstrate language delays. It is based on verbal behavior, established developmental milestones, and research from the field of behavior analysis. Verbal Behavior teaches communication by connecting words with
their purposes by looking at the conditions under which a person will use language (functional analysis of language). With the focus on the meaning of words being found in their function, verbal behavior is based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Verbal behavior is classified using the following verbal operants: mand, tact, intraverbal, echoic, imitation, and listener responding (B.F. Skinner, 1957).

The components of the VB-MAPP collectively provide a baseline level of performance, a direction for intervention, a system for tracking skill acquisition, a tool for outcome measures and other language research projects, and a framework for curriculum planning. For more information, visit: http://www.marksundberg.com/vb-mapp.htm
