Connections with Students
  • Continuous meetings or contact with regular education teachers to discuss students progress and provide alternative strategies so students can reach their maximum potential.
  • Involvement in the Professional Learning Community (PLC) process – Special Education teachers have been included in specific departments: Math (Kaseta, Malin) and English (Kennedy, Jette) meetings = working on identification and unwrapping of standards, determining the big idea (what do students know and what do we want them to be able to do), Powering the Standards (sequential steps needed to master the standard),

Connections with Students
  • Emphasis on raising students scores and having students see the relevance of what they learn in class and its direct connection to the real world.
  • Example: Math = Standard – Measurement, Unwrapping the Standard – volume and area, Big Idea – calculating area, Powering the Standards (specific steps or sequence needed to master standard). Direct connection between calculating area to purchasing a rug to cover your living room at local carpet center.
