Modeling

Modeling

"Modeling" is a way of teaching someone an action or process. Instead of saying "Say please!" You might model the behavior by always saying "please" yourself, and have the student learn what to do by watching. This can be less frustrating for the student. Instead of always being corrected and getting frustrated, he or she is taught the skill, and then given many examples of the activity done in the right way by everyone around him.

In this film, I model signing the letter "C" to a girl who is deaf-blind and has trouble moving her hands in certain ways.
