Scripting is a visual or auditory cue that supports learners to initiate or sustain communication with others.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about scripting (SC).
- Applying SC in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The SC module will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. However, the module is broken into individual lessons to help guide your learning:
|Lesson||Time to Complete|
|A Case for SC||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of SC||20 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for SC||25 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using SC||45 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring SC||25 minutes|
|Applying SC||10 minutes|
