Limited Capacity seats available

In this session, 3 interns-now first year special education teachers, 1 school-based inclusion specialist, and 1 professor working within a collaborative teacher preparation partnership will share examples of co-planned science, math and history units with highly successful academic inclusion and unit modifications for students with significant disabilities. Planning process uses many of our best EBP including Student-centered planning, UDL, Systematic Instruction, AT, and Peer Supports. Key here was the use of these processes and practices by interns to build team capacity for academic inclusion and to enhance the perceived capacity of the students with significant disabilities. By the end of this session, participants will be able to: 1. Use UDL as a common language and practice for collaborative planning and co-teaching 2. Use a unit modification strategy for co-planning 3. Use systematic instruction, UDL, AT and peer supports to plan meaningful learning and participation for students with significant disabilities within units of content area instruction. 4. Use academic learning as a tool for capacity building for the student and all team members. 5. Bring back successful examples of capacity-building co-planned units from inclusive classrooms to their own teams. 6. Visualize what an inclusive teacher can do!
