Accessing the General Curriculum in Social Studies: Inclusion in the Age of STAAR

In this workshop we will:

  • Develop instructional strategies such as use of Graphic Organizers, Visual Aids, Mnemonic Devices, Movement, and Storytelling for teachers in inclusive Social Studies classrooms
  • Align accommodations available to students with disabilities on Social Studies assessments with classroom instruction
  • Engage in brain-based strategies and learn how to apply them in the classroom so all students can better retain and apply information
Through the development of the topics listed above for Social Studies and special education teachers, this workshop is aimed at supporting teacher confidence and student success by focusing on how to develop access to the general curriculum in the social studies classroom. Information provided related to social studies content and strategies will be available for implementation upon return to campus.

Participants will receive a copy of Social Studies Worksheets Don’t Grow Dendrites by Marcia Tate.
