Indian Trail, NC (PRWEB) February 11, 2004 -
ÂTAGteach International in association with A DancerÂs Dream is offering a seminar for professional certification of TAGteach instructors. Attendees will learn how to apply the TAGteach method and will receive standing as TT1 certified teachers upon successful completion of the 2 Â½ -day program. The seminar will be held in Marblehead MA at the studios of A DancerÂs Dream on July 16-18, 2004.
TAGteach is teaching with acoustical guidance, and is used for fast-track learning in athletes and students. The teacher or coach ÂtagsÂ correct performance of skill elements with a click sound. The studentÂs brain does not have to process corrections, emotions or translations while the body is trying to perform complicated movements. The TAG trained athlete learns to react to this "data" with lightning fast speed while building muscle memory and confidence. Students and teachers in any discipline can benefit from this no-correction method of teaching.
"TAGteach is wonderful for children. They learn so much faster, they are spared the emotional downside of endless corrections, they learn empathy and partnership as they tag each other, and learning through reinforcement is physiologically an elating, joyful experience. What a great way to learn", says Karen Pryor, Behavioral Scientist and best-selling author of "DonÂt Shoot the Dog Â The new art of teaching and trainingÂ.
TAGteach has been used in many disciplines, including artistic gymnastics, Special Olympic rhythmic gymnastics, dance, soccer, volleyball, martial arts, speech pathology and kindergarten classes. ÂTagging has taught my students to think for themselvesÂ, says Amy Roberts who teaches hearing-impaired kindergarten students.
TAGteach certification will be of interest to teachers and coaches who would like to move beyond correction-based teaching and who would like to demonstrate their commitment to the emotional well-being of students. The 2 Â½ -day seminar will bring together coaches and teachers from many disciplines to learn from the founders of TAGteach in historic Marblehead MA on July 16-18, 2004.
