CBI has finally begun!The Community Based Instruction program is an integral part of the special education program for certain students with disabilities. It is my goal to teach the students how to function as independently as possible in a variety of community settings. The CBI goals for students are: to provide the opportunity to increase independence in the community, to provide choices for appropriate leisure skills, to teach appropriate social behavior in situationally dependent settings and to reinforce academic skills in a functional environment.The students seem to enjoy the planning of our trips almost as much as the trips themselves.They enjoyed ordering from the menu at CrackerBarrel and looking for a class pet at Petland. Unfortunately, my students wanted a parrot for the classroom and I persuaded them against their first choice.I was afraid that the parrot might set a bad example by talking out in class.
