A mathematics professional development program for inclusive classrooms
Developed by the Education Development Center and Bank Street College of Education, this professional development program will show general and special education teachers how to collaborate to provide a high-quality, standards-based mathematics education to all students, including those with disabilities. The Math for All learning experiences detailed in the corresponding facilitator’s kit will help teachers:
- Assess students’ strengths and needs
- Use multiple instructional strategies to teach specific math concepts
- Tailor lessons based on individual students' strengths and needs to help them achieve high-quality learning outcomes in mathematics
This program will emphasize how the neurodevelopmental demands of a math lesson interact with individual students' strengths and needs. The authors will provide step-by-step guidance for adapting materials, activities, and instructional strategies to make lessons accessible to all students. This participant book includes the handouts and reproducibles for the program. The forthcoming kit will include a facilitator’s guide and a corresponding DVD.
The following video explains the five day-long workshops, including format, facilitation, and topics.
