Limited Capacity seats available

States that have adopted Common Core standards have asked teachers to hold their students to higher expectations. In math, standards address both content knowledge and applying knowledge to solve problems in daily life. For teachers who support students with significant cognitive disabilities, instruction may focus on alternate achievement standards but must continue to provide connections to daily life. This study examined effects of an instructional package aligned to middle school Common Core math standards for students with significant disabilities. Data suggest a functional relationship between teacher use of the package and students’ ability to solve problems independently.

Learning Objectives: 

1) Identify three features of instruction that support access to grade-aligned math curriculum
2) Identify contexts in which students can apply grade-aligned problem solving skills in everyday life
3) Create a story-based math problem that applies grade-aligned math skills to a problem of daily life
