VIDEO: Undivided Learning with Dr. Caitlin Solone: Standards-Based Goals
In California, all special education students must have academic goals written into their IEP that are aligned with the state standards associated with their grade. On Thursday, October 14, Dr. Caitlin Solone, education advocate, teacher educator, and faculty at UCLA, explained how to develop standards-based goals that actually work for our kids. She gave us tips on how to include functional goals that are aligned with the school’s common core connectors, and explained why parent advocacy for curriculum inclusion is important for all students. Check out the clips below or watch the full recording here.
