If your little one is facing anxiety due to your separation, you should be aware about it. First School shares the ideas, which can be beneficial for your kids at that time. Read More..

Hello Everyone,

I am hoping to learn from anyone that works with high school and young adult transition programs-both those that prep for workforce and college.  What are your successes/ideas for student on the job training?  In addition, any ideas on adult learner literacy programs.  I have a Masters and am interested in a certificate program for adult learner literacy.  Does anyone know anything about employment options with this certificate/credential on teaching license.  I have worked in education at all levels and most recently adult ed for GED 2014.  Thanks for any ideas or help.  Katy

Thanks creating this group!  What about Child's Work"s profile photo?

Another question I have is regarding standards based IEPS's. In Minnesota, we are required to write IEP objectives around the state standards for the grade level the student is in.

Does anyone have any helpful in-sight or websites that give examples of various objectives in the areas of science, math, and reading?

Thank you and appreciate being a part of this group :)

Hello everyone~

I am a newbie and excited about joining you!

I have been teaching for 8 years in self-contained resource room setting and struggle with the same question as Marcy. I have checked out Elaines resources and appreciate the ideas. I will investigate them further as time allows.

I will put together a resource page of my own and share with you when I get back into my classroom.

Look forward to learning from and with you all!

Sheila

Hi - Miss L: No, inclusion is not mandatory in Ontario. My Board is a full-inclusion board. At least, theoretically ...:-)

Comment by Miss L on January 18, 2012 at 7:54pm

Thanks for the share Janet! I like the checklist idea, it easily summarizes the important details that can sometimes fall through the cracks. In our classes we always talk about the policies and practices in Manitoba but not necessarily for the rest of Canada. Is inclusive education mandatory in Ontario?

Comment by Janet Broder on January 18, 2012 at 2:49pm

Found this article/worksheet on TeachHUB and thought it would be a good activity to do to get some dialogue going. Probably good for teacher candidates too! http://www.teachhub.com/inclusion-educator-checklist

How to Recognize the "Fluff" and Tips to Avoid It

An attractive piece of writing speaks for itself. It is clear, competent and disseminates only the necessary information. But is this always the case with all writers? The answer is apparent. A good number of writers are victims of writing content full of fluff. Fluff boarders on words that are meaningless to content being written. When fluff is evident in writing, it becomes difficult to understand the message, read…See More
