This webinar will focus on the potential impact of the new national framework known as Results-Driven Accountability, announced by the Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). How will RDA affect the delivery of specially designed instruction for students with disabilities (SWDs) served in both general education and special education classes? It appears that a greater emphasis will be placed on the compliance indicators that measure progress on student achievement, graduation, and drop-out rate. We will explore what this “shift” towards RDA will look like in classroom settings serving SWDs in the future. Information will be provided to assist your school and district to implement practices that are aligned towards this change in accountability.
How Can Special Education Regain Its “Specially Designed Instruction” Groove in the Era of Results Driven Accountability (RDA)?
Comprehension - Going Beyond Fluency
Although fluency is important for reading success, it is not sufficient. Students must also actively work to make meaning out of the words and texts they read. Vocabulary is a major contributor to reading comprehension and is particularly relevant for English Language Learners and our special education students. In this webinar, Dr. Timothy Rasinski will share some of his favorite approaches for helping students engage in texts meaningfully and productively.
