W-6. Literacy & Math Skills in Inclusion Classrooms
Grade Levels: K-2, 3-5, 6-8
Length: 3-6 hours
Reading, wRiting, and aRithmetic were long considered the 3Rs of primary classrooms. Identifying sight words, contextual clues and vocabulary, reading or writing a short story, novel, or poem, creating dynamic sentences, paragraphs, and essays, or figuring out the degrees of missing angles in triangles or parallelograms and the greatest common factor of two numbers all require good teaching practices that connect the 3Rs to the students in motivating ways. Infuse literacy and numeracy objectives to develop student skills with fluency, word recognition and decoding, phonemic awareness, comprehension, number sense, patterns, procedures, algebraic reasoning, data analysis, probability, and spatial and quantitative problems across many genres, grades, and interdisciplinary lessons.
Learn how to manage inclusion classrooms to:
- Plan interdisciplinary lessons that honor students’ independent and instructional reading, writing, and math levels.
- Spiral literacy and math skills throughout the year.
- Apply appropriate modifications, accommodations and challenges for all learners across the curriculum.
GE and SE teachers, curriculum coordinators, supervisors, reading and math specialists and coaches, families, administrators, instructional assistants, and related staff.
