How Project-Based Learning Helps Special Needs Students Collaborate and Connect

By: Jill Koenemann. We were looking for a curriculum that would move beyond teaching the classics and would help students connect what they were learning with their own lives.

Working with Special Needs Students: What Do All Teachers Need to Know?

All teachers need to be invested in providing for all students. We also need to make sure that the families have access to the information and resources they need in order to provide support at home as well. By setting up a means of communicating with our colleagues, the families, and continuing to look for and share resources, it becomes easier to facilitate the best possible learning opportunities for all students.
