Special educators need to understand how to include and engage general educators in the IEP process. They also need to have a firm understanding of the research behind inclusive classrooms for special education students, the benefits of inclusion settings, and their potential drawbacks.
Create a 15-20 slide digital presentation for professional development for general education teachers on the topics of IEPs, inclusive classrooms, and team teaching.
Address the following within the presentation:
- Explain each major section of an IEP.
- Describe what an inclusive classroom setting looks like, and when it may be the most beneficial setting for students with disabilities; include specific examples of students with disabilities being appropriately placed in an inclusive setting.
- Describe three team teaching models; include benefits and drawbacks of each.
Include a title slide, reference slide, and presenter’s notes.
Your digital presentation should include graphics that are relevant to the content, visually appealing, and use space appropriately.
Use the IEP template examples to inform the assignment. Support your presentation with a minimum of three scholarly resources.
While APA format is not required for the body of the assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
