This engaging webinar presented by Robert J. Marzano will provide an overview of the new framework and accompanying resources in the book, The New Art and Science of Teaching. The new framework is much more than a second edition of the original published in 2007, and represents a shift from a teacher-behavior perspective to a student-outcomes perspective while addressing a wide range of instructional strategies. This shift in focus and how it can optimize student learning will be explored during the webinar. Implications of the model for classrooms, schools, and districts will also be addressed.


Title: Building on the Strengths of Students with Special Needs
Presenter: Toby Karten
Provider:  ASCD
Date & Time:  April 25, 2017 at 2:00 P.M. (CDT)
Register Here!

In this engaging webinar based on her book, Building on the Strengths of Students with Special Needs: How to Move Beyond Disability Labels in the Classroom , Toby Karten offers K-12 general and special educators and other school staff ways to focus on learner strengths. She shares inclusive curriculum scenarios in elementary, middle, and high schools to guide teachers of students with dyslexia; ADHD; and emotional, communicative, intellectual, physical, developmental, and sensory differences.

This webinar will acknowledge a variety of challenges with the appropriate inclusion strategies that look beyond a learner's disability label. Karten and participants will collaboratively investigate how to successfully involve learners with and without IEPs in the general education classroom-to the maximum extent appropriate-through positive lenses and increased knowledge. The presenter will also provide useful resources for supervisors, classroom teachers, related staff, families, and learners with and without exceptionalities.
