Ashford University ESE 631 Week 6 Final Paper Professional Presentation

Professional Presentation

In an article from the Council for Exceptional Children, Beckman (2001) states “Improved student learning requires teachers, schools, and districts to give up unproductive traditions and beliefs, replacing them with validated practices anda full understanding of the intent of the law. Successful student access to the general education curriculum is most likely when there is general acceptance” of best practices in special education and adherence to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Scenario:

You are a special education teacher and your principal would like the general education teachers to be aware of special education laws and strategies for supporting students with disabilities in their classrooms. With this in mind, the principal has asked you to put together an in-service presentation for the next faculty meeting (with mostly general education teachers) that reviews important components of special education, the law, and research-based strategies for instruction and inclusion.
