TARGET AUDIENCE: ALL K-12 EDUCATORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
HELP! I have students at all different levels in math, literacy and social-emotional readiness this school year!
Students have had a variety of experiences with emergency remote learning, and will likely re-enter the school year with a colourful spectrum of readiness to engage with the grade level ahead. Like never before, this fall will require that educators take time to deeply understand student strengths, needs, and talents and plan learning with multiple entry points to meet the needs of their learners.
Join this collaborative community to save planning time and meet the needs of your entire class, without creating 27 individual plans. In this series, we will support the use of Shelley Moore’s application of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to plan for diversity from the beginning. Teachers will leave this series with a very robust and useful classroom support plan that will assist with planning throughout the year.
In this 5-part series, teachers will:
· Design a useable Classroom Support Plan to assist with planning (specific to your grade/subject level)
· Expand your classroom strategies and supports repertoire to benefit all students
· Learn new ways to support students literacy, numeracy and social emotional learning using RTI (Response to Intervention)
· Intentionally Integrate teacher and student goal setting
· Explore formative assessment options (how will you know when they know)
