Special Education and Agile Mind
This module will provide an overview of Agile Mind’s embedded support for teachers of Special Education Learners in the contained classroom and will consider application of these design principles, and additional researched strategies, more broadly. Participants will develop planning tools through the lens of accessibility strategies: use hands-on investigations to build understanding, processing of visual information, organizational strategies such as breaking the problem down into smaller parts, and provide tools for students who may have difficulty with working memory. The goal of accessibility strategies is to provide the support students need to succeed. In this module, participants will:
- Identify strategies for making mathematics accessible to students with disabilities
- Develop a planning template to maximize engagement and accessibility for all students
