Design responsive instruction for the success of special needs students.

As states adopt more rigorous academic standards, schools must define how special education fits into standards-aligned curricula, instruction, and assessment. Utilizing PLC practices, general and special educators must develop collaborative partnerships in order to close the achievement gap and maximize learning for all. The authors encourage all educators to take collective responsibility in improving outcomes for students with special needs.

Benefits

  • Learn when conditions make special education services most effective.
  • Determine priority standards, and study the steps for unpacking these standards into learning targets for special needs students.
  • Discover what tailored instruction for special needs students does and does not mean.
  • Consider common team structures that support effective collaboration.
  • Develop instructional plans for special needs students using reproducibles.
