Limited Capacity seats available

Knowledge is power! Connecting students eligible for alternate assessment to standards-aligned content learned by ALL students has been the focus of our work for 5 years. We will explore student access to writing, literature and informational text, math (ranging from numbers and operations all the way to algebra), and science. Access is just the beginning of the process. The majority of our work has focused on instructional practices, protocols, assessment, and finding the meaning and applicability of this content for individual learners. When combined appropriately, life-long learning and retention of knowledge occur. Evidence will be presented showing outcomes of students on content over time. 1. Describe the process used to make content accessible and meaningful for students eligible for alternate assessment, yet aligned to standards 2. Evaluate examples of content reduced in complexity in writing, reading, math, and science. 3. Summarize the link between effective instructional practices and protocols and mastery/retention of standards-aligned content using student-level data 4. Describe the meaningful life-long outcomes for students with significant disabilities as a result of learning standards-aligned content
