In this professional development course for teachers, you'll get the training you need to reach the diverse mix of students you face every day—learning proven strategies for inclusion that turn diversity into opportunity. With a mix of students who have learning disabilities, neurobiological disorders, and physical challenges, the modern classroom requires an efficient and effective teacher who can prioritize under tight deadlines and be creative on demand. Over the next six weeks, you'll learn how to be the kind of super teacher who can guide every student toward academic success. And do you know what the best part is? You don't have to tear your hair out in order to adapt each lesson so that it makes sense for all your students!
We'll start our journey by talking about how students with special needs became a part of the mainstream. Then we'll discuss the inclusive classroom as a home for these students, exploring how all our kids can benefit from an adaptive learning environment. We'll examine how each child learns and what you can do to help him or her develop new strengths. You'll gain a deeper understanding of the opportunities offered by inclusion and how to build collaborative partnerships with the special educator and classroom aides.
Over the course of 12 lessons, you'll discover creative, low-budget strategies for turning your inclusive classroom into a nurturing, supportive learning environment that helps every student. If you're looking for the right way to get all your students excited about coming to school, this is the course for you!
Note: To receive 25 hours of instruction in the State of Oregon, please ensure your school is eligible to issue professional development units, and that the course is approved by your professional learning coordinator.
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.

This was an excellent course. Although I have no co-teacher or aide, I will be able to adapt the ideas given. As compared to the other classes I've taken, I would rate this as the one that I could benefit from the most.
Great stuff! Today I did a student self-assessment of modality strengths and the kids loved finding out about themselves as far as how they learn best. I like the idea of calling it "smarts" because my seventh graders were a little confused by the more elaborate terms.
Great course! The knowledge that I gained will be of tremendous value during the school year.
I always had inclusion students, now I have a toolbox to open and use with them! Thank you! I appreciate all of the knowledge you have shared with me in the last few months. This is my third class with you and I am reccomending you strongly to other teachers who are struggling with these same issues.
Thank you for a wonderful course! I wish I had taken this course before I started teaching. I feel this course has help me have a better understanding of how to meet each and every students' need in the classroom. I will definitely make more of an effort to be sensitive to ones smarts and how it can effect their learning.
I enjoyed the course and all it had to offer! I feel confident knowing that I have been successfully implementing some the strategies taught to support my special needs students and I look forward to using other strategies as well. I really like the strength based interview, and will be more aware of the MI I use to deliver my lessons/activities.
You have given so many good tips, tools, and processes that I will use when I get back into a classroom. I like the strength based interview idea a lot (had never seen that before) and I love all the different types of assessments that you gave examples of (and the templates for!) in this lesson...I have learned a lot of different ideas from this course and will be more than willing to establish these in the classroom for success.
I have learned so much from all the lessons. I am excited to use them in my classroom. I have done some of it, but not to the depth I plan too. Thanks for all the time spent putting all the material together and allowing us to copy them.
Thanks for the delightful journey! I really enjoyed this class and could relate from many viewpoints; having been a parent, classroom teacher, SPED teacher, and currently a school counselor. This information, the creative ideas, and additional resources have been very helpful...I also appreciate you including and reminding us about the importance of self-reflection as well...Thanks again, you did a great job presenting this information in an inspiring way, I will definitely use it!
This course opened my mind to the fact that every student learns in a different way, and I should consistently modify my approach to teaching the material to meet the learning needs of all students.
