Presented by: Jo Prestia
Teacher PD Event Information: 6 Teacher PD Hours
All children have the right to an education and while a large percentage of children have no issues in accessing and managing the curriculum, there are still a large number who for whatever reasons need extra assistance. The audit of the Programs for Students with Special Learning Needs undertaken in 2012 by the Auditor-General clearly found a lack of clear guidelines in how schools should manage the education of those students who have special learning needs but fail to meet the funding criteria. This workshop will especially focus on these students and give teachers and teacher aides some practical ideas that can be implemented in the classroom to assist with the modification and deconstruction of the curriculum to better meet their needs.
Participants will investigate:
- Differences between differentiating and modifying work.
- Learning preferences.
- Goal setting.
- Technological assistance.
- Individual Learning Plans.
NB: Participants should bring along 6 copies of an assessment task of their choosing that will be used as a learning tool and restructured to meet different learning requirements of students.
