Description

This stack is designed to provide educators with strategies they can use to meet individual student needs. Specifically, educators will learn how to implement different co-teaching approaches with a special educator to meet instructional needs for exceptional learners. Educators will also learn behavior management practices that can be implemented for students who are non responsive to universal classroom strategies.

What You’ll Learn

You will learn how to individualize instructional and behavioral management approaches to meet student needs.

Who Should Apply

  • PK12 educators
  • Education support professionals

Micro-credentials


Alternative Teaching

The educator will create a lesson plan that embeds an alternative teaching approach to co-teaching. The educator will then record their own integration of the co-teaching approach followed by a video evaluation.

Behavior contracts

Educators conduct an interview session with a focal student who is in need of targeted intervention to improve classroom behaviors. Information from the interview will help the educator develop a behavior contract to be signed by the student, the teacher, and possibly the parent. The educator will submit the completed contracts for each day they were implemented across two weeks and provide a summary on the target behavior(s).

Check-In/Check-out

Educators collaborate with other stakeholders to create a daily progress report for a student in need of Tier 2 levels of behavioral support. The educator enters data on a weekly summary form. The educator completes a log as they implement the CICO intervention.

Group Contingencies

Educators analyze scenarios in which the teacher implements a specific type of group contingency. The educator uses information from each of the individual scenarios to justify their selection.

Introduction to PBIS

Educators analyze scenarios in which students engage in challenging behavior (with varying levels of intensity and frequency) and match them to an appropriate tier of support. The educator uses information from each of the individual scenarios to justify their selection.

One Teach, One Assist

The educator will create a lesson plan that embeds a one teach, one assist approach to co-teaching. The educator will then record their own integration of the co-teaching approach followed by a video evaluation.

Parallel Teaching

The educator will create a lesson plan that embeds a parallel teaching approach to co-teaching. The educator will then record their own integration of the co-teaching approach followed by a video evaluation.

Self-Monitoring

Educators will develop an individualized self-monitoring scorecard. Educators will conduct an orientation session on a personalized self-monitoring intervention with a focal student in need of Tier 2 behavioral support. The teacher (and student) will collect ongoing data on a predetermined target behavior and enter that data on a weekly summary form.

Station Teaching

The educator will then record their own integration of the co-teaching approach followed by a video evaluation.

Teaming

The educator will create a lesson plan that embeds a teaming approach to co-teaching. The educator will then record their own integration of the co-teaching approach followed by a video evaluation.

Understanding Co-teaching

The teacher will review a vignette and select a co-teaching approach that would be appropriate to integrate. The teacher will use the information in each vignette to provide a justification for their selected co-teaching approach.
