Welcome to the Introduction to TAGteach On-Line course! We are so glad that you’re here and that you want to learn more about how to use positive reinforcement in teaching.
This course will teach you the basics of the TAGteach approach. You will learn to be a good observer of behavior, how to break behavior down into small teachable pieces and how to reinforce effectively. Please keep an open mind and think about how the information in this course can be used in your life and with the things you need to teach. There are lots of specific examples and many sports examples, but we’d like you to think about how the principles can apply to anything that you want to teach.
