The Teacher Cue Card for Simple Directions (TCCSD) was created for teacher use in the classroom, with children who experience difficulty following complex directions containing the temporal concepts “before” and “after”. Parents could also use it at home where needed.
Two versions of this Teacher Cue Card, a pocket size and classroom size, are provided to help:
Remind Teachers of SIMPLE Word Order for Directions
Promote Student Success and Independence
Reduce Student and Teacher Frustration
The secret to keeping directions simple is also shared. Specific language structures for wording Teacher directions are provided. A quick quiz at the end gives teachers an opportunity to test their knew knowledge of SIMPLE direction structures. Lastly, a “Green Pointer” outlines which pages to print to save teachers money and our Earth.
