Limited Capacity seats available

TASH has been a leader in teacher preparation for inclusive schooling. Our presentation/discussion will draw on the implications from a teacher follow along study that was completed last year. The discussion will relate to what should indicators of success be for new and continuing special educators, given that contexts where people work vary so greatly. How does this relate to the common core, person-centered planning, and a focus on quality of life in inclusive communities? What do we want new teachers and continuing teachers to demonstrate, given their work context? OBJECTIVES: As a result of this session participants will be able to: 1. Discuss the varying indicators of success and barriers to success that teachers in special education face, including policies, contexts, and practices; 2. Determine innovative strategies for teacher evaluation and bring these strategies with them as they leave the conference; 3. Share ideas from their own state, district, or University.
