Nancibell® Visualizing & Verbalizing®

Nancibell® Visualizing & Verbalizing® at the Professional Training Institute

At the Professional Training Institute, we offer a two-day workshop that gives teachers training and practice in the Nancibell® Visualizing and Verbalizing® Program for Language Comprehension and Thinking®. This program helps students develop concept imagery—the ability to form mental images from oral or written language. Concept imagery has been found to enhance language comprehension, expression, following directions, and critical thinking. Students begin by describing pictures and “picturable” words. Reading comprehension is enhanced as they progress to visualizing and describing sentences, paragraphs, and longer text and apply learned skills to content area reading.

Participants may take this course for one graduate credit through Fitchburg State University. An additional fee of $210, payable through the instructor, will apply.
