1. Evidence-Based Practice in Special Education
Evidence-based practice in public education is not just a good idea--it's required by law! There is no need for teachers to rely solely on their own ideas when we have a foundation of proven strategies that work in the classroom. Let's explore!
2. Research Based Learning Strategies
Learning strategies help students organize their thinking and be successful learners. Sounds simple, but there's a little more to it than following a recipe for instruction. Read on to learn about important research and how this directs instructional practices.
3. Project Based Learning for Students with Special Needs
Teaching students with special needs can be more dynamic and effective if we incorporate projects into our instruction. This lesson discusses project-based learning for students with special needs.
