“I would love to see [LSCI] become part of every teacher training program!” March 21, 2018 By Signe Whitson Amy Lawson, a Special Educator from Hartford Middle School in Vermont, just completed the LSCI Certification training. Here’s what she had to say about her experience: Describe the significant learnings you are taking away from this course: This class was extremely valuable. I would love to see it become part of every teacher training program! I appreciate having a framework to use with challenging interactions with students–the interview basics and procedure. I learned that I use many of the techniques already (affirming, acknowledging feelings…), without really understanding their value and purpose within the whole process. I also learned that sometimes taking a long time to process with a student is ok, and even necessary, when other times I’ve felt inefficient. It’s extremely helpful to understand the flowchart of a productive conversation including knowing how to begin and how to know when you’re at the end of it. What, if anything, would you like to learn as a follow up to this course? I think, a follow-up, refresher class would be a good idea. After practicing some of these techniques in real-time, an opportunity to remind and refresh would be very valuable. Good news, Amy! We offer both live and online Refresher training opportunities.
