The Role of the IEP | National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

This paper discusses the educational literature pertaining to IEPs in relation to access to the general curriculum and presents a framework to be used in evaluating the extent to which IEPs reflect access to the general curriculum.

Part One provides a literature review of relevant articles that predated the inclusion of the access to the general curriculum requirements in IDEA '97.

Part Two outlines the specific requirements in IDEA '97 that pertain to IEPs and access to the general curriculum. Part Three summarizes recent articles that have appeared in the aftermath of IDEA '97. Finally, Part Four presents a framework to analyze the extent to which the IEPs of students with disabilities reflect access to the general curriculum.

ZaidLearn: A Juicy Collection of Bloom's Digital Taxonomies!

ZaidLearn: A Juicy Collection of Bloom's Digital Taxonomies! | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

One way to find the right tool (or app) for a learning context/activity/situation, is to look through the eyes of Bloom's taxonomy. Although, I am not a fan of dumping a tool within a level of Bloom's taxonomy, which is often very misleading, it can be helpful for educators to discover new tools and possibilities.

 

But, please keep in mind that many tools/apps can easily be used for all the levels of Bloom's taxonomy with an open and creative mindset. Therefore, don't be fooled by these Bloom's digital taxonomies shared below, and use them instead to discover new tools and ways to inspire more engaging and creative learning.
