Some Thoughts to Guide You

This is an interactive session and depends on your willingness to share honestly and perhaps be vulnerable with other administrators.

This time will allow us all to learn from one another and the vast expertise in the room.

Additionally, as we work to give feedback that is “growth producing” for teachers, how do we provide that for one another?

EngageNY.org

keep in mind
Keep in Mind
  • Classrooms in many of New York's schools are extremely diverse.
  • Any given classroom may contain students with disabilities, English Language Learners, and students from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.
  • It is important that students with learning challenges be treated as individuals with specific needs, rather than as a "group" with the same needs.  

EngageNY.org

keep in mind1
Keep in Mind
  • Although many of the supports provided to students with learning challenges may appear to be the same, teachers should be carefully considering the differences between
    • accommodations: specific supports provided to meet the individual needs of special education students)
    • modifications: changes made to the outcomes/content of curriculum made by way of IEP
    • scaffolds :temporary specific supports provided to meet the needs of individual English Language Learners and other learners.

a special note
A Special Note

Expeditionary Learning believes that every student deserves to be treated as a "general education" student and that every student deserves the supports he/she needs to participate fully in his/her educational experience.

Going Into a Classroom
  • Prepare to enter the room via video and capture your evidence and thinking in a way that makes sense to you as an administrator.
  • Think about… What do you notice? What do you wonder? What do you want to ask the teacher about scaffolds for ELL students? Accommodations for students with disabilities? What positive feedback do you have for this teacher?

! : a-ha! This is something that hits you from the reading and makes you go “a-ha” (could be helpful or new thinking regarding accommodations and/or scaffolds).

? : I would like to ask a colleague about this.
