Specialized for Special Needs: Ideas and tools for Learning Support, Speech/language, Emotional Support, and More
Learn how to adapt your teaching for your students’ special needs using TeachersFirst resources. Participants will view and explore tools to help students needing emotional support, learning support, speech/language support, autistic support, ESL/ELL assistance, and more. Find resources that promote organization, focus, and differentiated learning. Use exploration time to discover and discuss how selected resources can be utilized in your classroom. As a result of this session and through individual follow-up, teachers will: • Gather ideas by exploring 6 -10 specialized resources on TeachersFirst. • Explore and practice with selected resources. • Investigate and discuss lesson ideas offered in reviews and by other participants. • List and discuss other curriculum related projects or activities that could be done using the resources in the teacher's own teaching situation. • (Follow-up) Implement one of the provided resources into an upcoming teaching unit or lesson.
