1. Supplementary & Functional Curriculum: Selection & Implementation
Students with disabilities may benefit from adaptations to the traditional curricula. This lesson will discuss the selection and implementation of supplementary and functional curriculum in special education.
2. Integrated Curriculum: Definition, Benefits & Examples
Have you ever wondered what and how an integrated curriculum works? Learn about this hot topic that is shaping how teachers teach and students learn in the classroom.
3. Priming as a Teaching Strategy: Definition & Examples
Teachers usually know before they present a lesson how certain students will react. Some students, who need routine and predictability, are more successful when they are prepared for what's coming. Let's look at a strategy called priming and how it may be implemented in your classroom.
4. Making a Curriculum Accessible to Students with Disabilities
Students with disabilities have unique needs and may require extra attention in education. This lesson will explain how to make curriculum accessible for special needs students. We will end with a quiz to see what you have learned.
5. Accommodations for Students with Autism
There are many ways to accommodate individuals with autism in the classroom. This lesson will provide ideas and strategies to better prepare the teacher. Learning how to accommodate these students will make teaching easier and set the student up for success.
6. Classroom Modifications for Autism
As teachers, we want our students to succeed. We'd try anything, even if it meant turning the classroom upside down. Fortunately, there are much simpler modifications we can implement to help students with autism succeed in our classroom.
7. Study Skills for Students with Learning Disabilities
Study skills are instrumental in the success of students with learning disabilities. The more we can help them develop skills in note taking, organization, test taking, and memory, the more they will thrive. In this lesson, we will explore study skills strategies that you can teach your students with learning disabilities.
