Inclusive Teaching and Learning
(Special Ed, Dyslexia, Other Learning Challenges, Social-Emotional Learning, Equity & Inclusion, ELL, Curriculum)
Education is moving away from just identifying learning disabilities towards identifying barriers to learning. To complete this shift, teachers must break the mindsets and beliefs that some students are deficient, unable to learn, or incapable; and begin to deploy teaching strategies that unlock the potential of every child in their classrooms.
At the end of the class, participants should be able to:
– Describe the key principles, benefits, and values of inclusive education.
– Understand the attitudes and values that underpin learner-centered education
– Be familiar with a range of teaching approaches that promote active learning and inclusivity in your classroom
Target Audience: Early Childhood (Birth – 4 years), Elementary
