Int’l Teachers: Special Needs in the Mainstream Classroom (TTC 110)
International schools often enroll students who need more support than the standard curriculum provides. Many international schools do not have the resources or the specialized personnel that national systems offer. As a result, international schools sometimes struggle with how to best meet the needs of diverse learners. This course is designed to help teachers address the needs of students with identified, or previously unidentified, learning needs.
Participants will learn and practice how to:
Identify and advocate for students and ideas that nurture inclusive learning environments
Build partnerships with parents to support their understanding of their child’s needs
Identify root causes of learning needs and match instructional practices to address them
Collaboratively approach interventions for students with colleagues and parents through analysis of data
Develop and implement methods for progress monitoring of learning needs
Develop a learning profile, and/ or an action plan for an individual or group of students.
