Expressive and Receptive Language Development: Informal Assessment
During the Informal Assessment, teachers use verbal prompting to develop expressive and receptive language by using the phrase, “What did the video say….” this makes a clear expectation that students are no longer accessing prior knowledge.
Through recall of information that was presented in the lesson video, students can strengthen auditory processing and comprehension over time by attending to the content of the video and then recalling the concept when prompted.
Students should be expected to use language from the video. If students are unable to recall specific language from the video, the video may be replayed and attention called to the language used. Using the language provided from the video also helps build understanding of the key vocabulary.
Students will also have access to Image Exchange Cards to support them in using language from the video. Alternatively, if students are answers yes or no questions, the teacher will use vocabulary from the video when asking the questions.
By strengthening auditory processing and comprehension, students will increase their ability to follow a multi-step directive, such as a task that may be verbally described in the workplace.
