Students with diverse learning needs add pizazz to the classroom, yet also present challenges for teachers. Teachers are faced with teaching to a classroom of students, each with their own learning styles, interests, and abilities. Providing optimal learning for such a diverse group can seem overwhelming. In this April 30th workshop Special Educators, teachers of English Language Learners, and general educators will choose four mini seminars of interest from the following topics measured by State Performance Plan indicators (SPP’s) and Title III’s Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAO’s):
• Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) for students with disabilities (SPP5B)
• Proficiency rates for students with IEPs and English Language Learners on statewide assessment for Comm Arts & Math grades 3-8, HS (SPP3C & AMAO3)
• Parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for students with disabilities and English Language Learners (SPP8)
• Writing transition IEP goals and exploring transition assessment tools that will enable students to meet the post-secondary goals (SPP13) Increasing English Language Development (K-12) for ELL (AMAO 1, 2, 3)
Interactive, “short and sweet” sessions will provide takeaways teachers can use the next day in their classrooms! After registering, each participant will receive a link to register for 4 break-out sessions, 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon.
