The Case of Mountain View Elementary: A pilot of a case-based approach to tackling school-wide dilemmas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

In this session, participants will become a part of a CAST pilot study to explore how a case-based teaching approach can be used to support educators to explore the complexities of UDL implementation. Participants will be asked to read the case of Mountain View Elementary and offer a brief reflection prior to the session. During the session, participants will assume an active role in wrestling with the real-life challenges and dilemmas that Mountain View Principal Kathy Thomas and her colleagues are facing as they wrestle with how to support diverse learners at their school. We ask that participants come willing to engage with us as co-researchers! We are excited to explore the potential of a case-based approach, and we will save time at the end of the session for your feedback.

This session will be capped at 20 participants. Please email Jenna Gravel (jgravel@cast.org) if you are interested in joining us. We are hoping to videotape this session and take field notes. We will ask all participants for their consent to be included in this data collection prior to the start of the session.
