Implementing Common Core for students with disabilities
Experts help schools learn how to effectively teach Common Core to student with disabilities
A new website for students–and in particular, those with disabilities–is offering free “anytime, anyplace” resources, materials, and information to help schools ensure that their students meet the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
Created by the Center for Technology Implementation (CTI), the website for students with disabilities, PowerUp What Works, links evidence-based practices, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and technology to guide teachers, school leaders, professional development (PD) facilitators, and teacher educators in their professional learning.
The goal, according to CTI, is to enhance teaching and learning in English language arts (ELA) and math through the effective implementation of technology tools and strategies…while also focusing on how effective implementation directly affects students with disabilities.
