    Webinar Recording: Back Chaining - The Key to Reliability

    This webinar presented by Joan Orr (hosted by Theresa McKeon) provides an introduction to a key strategy useful to all TAGteachers. This topic will also be of interest to animal trainers since it is equally applicable to animal training. 

    Back chaining involves teaching a skill starting from the end and going to the beginning. We will cover the following topics:

    1. What is back chaining?
    2. Why is it useful and effective?
    3. How to break a skill down
    4. How to implement a back chain
    We will consider video examples of both complex and simple back chains.

    This is a intermediate/advanced level webinar and will assume knowledge of basic TAGteach, how to use a marker, understanding of the concept of a behavior chain, understanding of the concept of a cue and understanding of basic task analysis. We will not have time to cover these topics in the webinar

    Webinar Recording: Leave It! Impulse Control for the Teacher (Free for members until Nov 26, 2013)

    With Theresa McKeon

    We teach impulse control to students but what about the teacher? Can you allow a student to focus on one behavior? Can you wait while a student searches for success? 

    This webinar will discuss the main reason that teachers have trouble with impulse control:

    1) Passion talking

    2) Teacher's desire to be reinforced

    3) Teacher's concern about how we are regarded by students and observers

    Equestrian Instructors: Learn these Advanced Teaching Skills to Boost Student Performance

    With Jane Jackson

    Do you see promise and potential in your students, but wish they would progress faster? This webinar will show you how to boost your student's performance. You'll learn how to make simple changes to your teaching approach. You'll learn how to talk less, say more and motivate your students to do their very best. You'll learn about a powerful new approach to giving structured, perfectly timed positive reinforcement. This is a practical webinar that will show you exactly how to use TAGteach. TAGteach is teaching method that uses the principles of behavior science for precise, efficient, effective teaching. Elite orthopedic surgeons are trained this way as reported in Scientific American. Your students will be thrilled to know that they are being taught like surgeons!

    Raise the bar for your teaching and for your student's performance.

    In this webinar you'll see creative ideas for removing the horse (and his stress) from the picture and using just a few minutes on the ground before the lesson to minimize unnecessary errors.

    This webinar includes discussion and commentary from TAGteach cofounders Theresa McKeon, Joan Orr and Karen Pryor.

    Risk Free! 30-Day Money Back Guarantee

    You'll be able to put these new teaching ideas into practice in your very next lesson. This webinar comes with a 30 day money back guarantee, so if you don't see positive results, we'll give you a refund.

    Jane Jackson will lead you through the basics of TAGteach, and will cover three examples with videos to show you exactly how you can use this method:

    1. Mounting

    This is a simple skill with a set of tag points that would apply to most riders. Learn how to teach this without the horse, so he doesn't have to tolerate lots of bad mounts. Watch the free snippet below to see how this works. This is edited. There is lots more in the full version.

    2. A cognitive skill

    Do you find it tough sometimes to teach a concept (as opposed to a clear cut physical skill)?. You'll learn about the thought process you need to adopt to use TAGteach to teach thinking skills. You'll see this in an example of how to teach the concept of riding a 20 meter circle.



    3. Problem Solving on the Fly

    You know how even the best planned lesson sometimes goes wrong? A student does something completely unexpected that throws your planning right out the window. You'll learn how to diagnose and fix those problems. You'll learn how to set new goals on the fly, get the student on the right track and give positive reinforcement at the exact right moment to cement that new learning.

    Here's the problem: The horse is drifting into the inside of the 20 m circle. The rider raises her right shoulder, her left side collapses, putting more weight on her inside seat bone, which causes the horse go further to the inside the circle- exactly opposite of what she wanted. TAGteach to the rescue! You'll see how Jane fixes this problem in a few minutes with almost no talking and no corrections for the student.

    Have you wondered how to apply TAGteach in a group sports setting with special needs kids? Will it be too noisy for the learner to hear the tags? Will the learner be too distracted by everything else going on the room? How do you handle the reinforcers? Can you use TAGteach to manage behavior and social issues? Do coaches really think that kids taught with TAGteach learn better? Listen to this month's interview with a TAGteacher and watch the accompanying videos to get answers to these and more questions.

    This month, Martha Gabler interviewed with Joey Iversen. Joey is a Level 2 TAGteacher with extensive experience from both ends of the tagger. Joey has trained several tennis coaches to use TAGteach with her instruction, because she wants to learn in the most efficient way possible. Joey has been working with a special needs tennis program and has successfully integrated TAGteach into the teaching protocols.

    Martha had questions for Joey on the following topics:

    • How did you get started with TAGteach?
    • What was the one feature that really “pulled” you in?
    • Where did you first start using TAGteach?
    • Tell us about TAGteach and tennis for special needs kids
    • How did the coaches react?
    • What were their positive comments?
    • Where there any negative reactions?

    Following the interview there is more fascinating discussion with Joey about the specifics of TAGteach application in the special needs tennis program and the benefits observed.

    There was a question about the problems that new TAGteacher might encounter. We discussed ways to overcome these

    We also discussed ways to apply TAGteach and how Martha applied it with her son.
