Using Peer-Mediated Literacy Instruction to Promote Inclusion

Feedback form is now closed.
Attendees will experience our district's story of inclusion, with a specific focus on the power of peers in literacy instruction. Those interested in the historical disenfranchisement of students with low-incidence disabilities, who are interested in making education more inclusive are encouraged to attend. We will root ourselves in the "WHY" behind inclusion, and give concrete examples (pictures, videos, snapshots) of HOW we use UDL to achieve inclusion in our classrooms. Participants will be given resources such as adapted lesson plans, UDL templates, and peer mentoring materials that can be used immediately in literacy classrooms or modified to specific content areas to allow them to put UDL peer-mediated practices into work in their classrooms this fall! The strategies will be applicable to all content areas and a hyperlinked resource will be provided.
