Most students receiving special education services spend the majority of their day in the general education classroom, but general educators report feeling unprepared to meet the instructional and social-emotional needs of students with disabilities. This four-part training series will provide LEAs with support to develop capacity among all educators who serve students with disabilities to implement evidence-based, high-leverage practices that correlate with improved academic and social-emotional outcomes for all learners, regardless of disability status.
This series was created for general educators who wish to develop their capacity to effectively teach students with disabilities and for general education and special education co-teaching pairs who wish to deepen their instructional practice together.
In the third session, Using High-leverage Practices to Establish Learning Environments that Promote Success for ALL Students , participants will:
- Identify routines and procedures that support the development of a respectful, consistent, positive classroom environment that empowers students to take ownership of their learning;
- Identify key elements of effective social skills instruction that can be integrated into classroom routines, procedures, and delivery of content; and
- Apply knowledge of these routines, procedures, and approaches to social skills instruction to develop a shared library of positive, prosocial classroom systems.
