Community-based instruction (CBI) provides hands-on opportunity for students to engage in authentic learning experiences within their community and acquire the skills needed to complete daily life activities in order to become active participants in their community. In this session, participants will learn about a framework for implementing CBI and have opportunities to develop/modify lesson plans that align to state standards. Participants will: Define the purpose and importance of CBI. Identify key components of an effective CBI framework. Collaboratively plan/modify CBI lesson plans. This course is appropriate for classroom staff members (teachers, teaching assistants, related service staff, etc.) who facilitate and/or support Community-Based Instruction. The material is appropriate for kindergarten through transition levels.
