While "No Child Left Behind" may be history, the focus on high stakes testing, data usage, and student accountability still remains high - even in special education classrooms. Students with IEPs and their teachers have to work harder to show significant gains and growth. Join Valerie Lewis as she shares ways in which you can teach standards with fidelity, while holding students accountable for learning outcomes. She will also provide strategies and tips that will help you focus on teaching and learning rather than on tests.

Very informative. Thank you.
I love the idea of using mobile apps to engage special education students. Unfortunately, our school district will frown upon using Snapchat, but I could definitely use Google Docs, Read Theory, Grammarly, Audacity, No Red Ink and Natural Reader.

I feel enlightened! I am a Special Education teacher; however, we no longer have resource classes in my school. I am going to incorportate some of these with my caseload students.
Makes me want to look at data a little differently now. I do have my students do a lot of reflecting and communicating with me to help understand what they did not understand or how well they really understood a topic. Mastering of skills and standards is still important as stated. Students must put in the work, no matter what the subject. Make sure to continue to model the expectation, this applies to all students not just special education students.

From Laura J - I think the Google Docs for voice to text would be great for learning support students open responses on tests. Also Natural reader would be great for all students to listen to what they have written.

I teach 3rd grade, but I did learn some very helpful information to use in my classroom and for me to use personally in regards to my teaching.
