Special Ed Corner: What Should Special Education Teachers Know and Be Able to Do?
[Source: Education Week]
A newly-minted special education teacher should be able to:
- “collaborate with professionals to increase student success,”
- “use multiple sources of information” to understand a student’s strengths and needs, and
- “systematically design instruction toward specific learning goals.”
These skills are among 22 “high-leverage practices” for special education teachers that were developed by the Council for Exceptional Children and the federally-supported Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform, also known as CEEDAR.
Representatives for the groups have been spreading the word about their work this year, including during a session here at the annual leadership conference sponsored by the federal office of special education programs.
