Educators use a variety of strategies and learning accommodations to teach diverse learners. However, educators can struggle to make grade-level curriculum possible and achievable for students with intellectual disabilities. An educational process, known as modifying curriculum, can open doors to an inclusive, high quality education for students who work below grade level. In this edWebinar, Nicole Eredics, author of Inclusion in Action: Practical Strategies to Modify Your Curriculum, will give you step-by-step instruction on when and how to modify curriculum.
Nicole, a seasoned inclusion teacher, has the information, tools, and strategies you need to take grade-level curriculum and transform it into rigorous content that is intellectually and developmentally appropriate for students who work below grade level. Most importantly, learn:
The fundamentals of creating and maintaining truly inclusive classrooms
An overview of ways to support diverse learners through universal design for learning, social and emotional supports, and accommodations
The role of curriculum modifications in the education process
How to modify any curriculum for students with intellectual disabilities
