Limited Capacity seats available

A Tale of Two Classrooms looks to explore how the use of Common Core State Standards, assessment, goal development, and differentiation can meet (and work!) within elementary inclusive literacy classrooms. Personal experience from two special and general education certified teachers about practices developed, tested, and proven to be effective will be shared. Both former teachers worked with students with and without disabilities in the inclusive environment, collaborating with many service providers and other teachers. Discussion about how to foster self-determination, goal development, and the use of assessment data will be discussed. Additionally, discussion of how to support all learners, including those with complex support needs, will be addressed in regards to both academic and social needs as well as self-determination. After this session, participants will be able to: - provide differentiated literacy activities in an elementary school classroom - provide options to encourage students to take ownership of their learning - support goal development and foster independence for all learners
