About this learning opportunity

Inclusive Planning for K-6 Classrooms: This learning series will target how to respond and design for diverse classrooms from K through grade 6. We will look at a variety of examples and share resources connected to both in classroom and continuous or virtual learning. Each session will target design strategies and will touch on frameworks including class profiles, RTI/MTSS, UDL, Learning Maps, Backwards Design and many others.
 
Session 1: Understanding inclusion for today’s classrooms
In this session we review the evolution of inclusion and what inclusive education means both philosophically and practically in today’s classroom contexts.
 
Session 2: Getting to know students from a strength based perspective
In this session we will look at strategies that help us to determine the dimensions of our students including strengths, stretches, needs, identities and barriers. 
 
Session 3: Designing support plans for diverse classrooms
Based on the information collected about our students, in this session we will look at how we can design support plans that are responsive to the unique needs of a diverse classroom community.
 
Session 4: Constructing adjustable curricular plans so all students can be successful
Continuing to build on the classroom support plan, this session will focus on curriculum design strategies that help to create plans that allow for both access and challenge for a group of diverse learners.

 

YES, these sessions will be recorded and the link sent to those registered ONLY.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
