So, I had to google it, I was curious
"Priming helps prepare children for an upcoming activity or event with which they may have difficulty.Priming is an intervention that previews information or activities with which a child or youth is likely to have difficulties. It is an effective tool for increasing success on a variety of tasks and behaviors."

Yep, priming is sort of "pre-training" a child for specific activities. So if you're going to teach a lesson on dogs, you'd pre-teach some concepts and vocabulary to prepare the child for the lesson. If you are going to do a specific activity that might be difficult (behaviorally or academically) for a specific child, you would prepare the child for those aspects of the lesson ahead of time.

Thanks. Is it considered priming if the pre-teaching is done as a whole class and not just the student with the IEP?

I believe so! It's the same concept regardless of number in the audience. Whether someone would take issue that an accommodation or modification is not specific to a child on an iep (meaning everyone is getting it), i don't know.

I think I have heard it before ( Thanks Thirdnerd) with students with social difficulties - as students that are diagnosed with Autism sometimes may need practice in social situations to help feel relaxed and converse easily.
