68: Using Commercials in Speech

Using Commercials in Speech

I can’t believe I haven’t talked about this on the podcast yet…

I am talking all about using commercials in speech in today’s episode with a focus on using them to work on inferencing.

Working on inferencing is definitely one of my favorite topics and goals to work on because it allows me to show my students that they can actually be successful!

This is such a hard and tricky skill, so I teach it to my students with materials that are fun and interactive. That is where commercials come in!

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Why I love using commercials
  • The reason some students struggle with inferencing
  • What we are teaching students when we work on inferencing
  • The importance of building background knowledge
  • Working on higher-level thinking

I really hope that you found this helpful and that you find ways to incorporate commercials into your speech room!

Don’t forget to check out my inferencing resources and blog post to find additional information on using commercials for working on inferencing.

Are you sick and tired of professional development that isn't relevant to you in the field being a school-based SLP or an SLP that works with school-aged children? I’ve been there, and that is why I created the Speech Retreat conference which provides amazing professional development and practical and relevant information for school-based SLPs! It is on July 17th, but you should get your ticket ahead of time at speechretreat.com because we are already giving away tons of fun prizes in the exclusive Facebook group!
