Have you ever wondered how to weave syntax structures into new concepts and vocabulary in a content lesson?  “Diving In with TAGS: An Elementary School Lesson” is a continuation of “Getting Your Feet Wet with TAGS” using the CID TAGS: Teacher Assessment of Grammatical Structures (1-2-3) system to target and develop receptive and expressive language skills in a child with hearing loss.

In this course, a CID teacher shares the methods and strategies she uses to teach syntax structures from TAGS and new concepts and vocabulary during a science lesson.
