7 Ways to Adapt the Common Core Standards for Students with Special Needs

7 Ways to Adapt the Common Core Standards for Students with Special Needs | Implementing Common Core Standards in Special Education | Scoop.it
The establishment of Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for students nationwide represents a particularly robust challenge for teachers of students with special needs.
Beth Panitz, Ed.D.'s insight:

Seven ways to help educators provide flexible means through which students with special needs can master the Common Core State Standards while still maintaining high expectations for achievement.

more...
Abby Moran's curator insight, November 21, 2013 1:16 AM

The establishment of common core standards is such a large topic in education today. However, before reading this, I had never thought about the ways that the common core standards would affect students with special needs. The article mentions the two sides to the topic. Advocates for students with special needs have made it clear that these students should "be held to the same high level of achievement as typically developing students." In essence, students with special needs should be treated equally to other students in an academic as well as in a non-academic sense. However, some students may possess disabilties that may make it difficult for them to meet certain standards. I understand both sides of the issue. Students with disabilities should be held to the same standards if possible. The article provides 7 ways to adapt the standards in order to meet the needs of students with special needs. These tips include: provide alternative means of expression, utilize the students interests, employ alternative texts, use assitive technologies and Universal Design for Learning tools, engage the student's strengths, pair the student with a typically developing student and modify the environment. I think these tips are actually very beneficial and I understand their importance. From being in the classroom this semester, I've witnessed the common core curriculum in action. It's said to be difficult for the teacher as well as the students. Since these standards are so difficult, it's necessary to work with special needs students so they don't fall behind. This way, they are expected to meet the same standards as other students while receiving support and accomodation. 

 

Julie Newman's comment, December 10, 2013 7:50 PM
Similar to Abby, I have had the chance to see the common core standards in action through my placement this semester. I have witnessed how hard it is for these standards to be accomplished in the regular classroom, so I can only imagine how hard it could be to implement in a special needs classroom. While theoretically I want to say that all special needs children should be held to the same standards as regular students, I do not feel as though this is viable. Special needs students fall on a wide range, so yes, some of these students may be able to adhere to these standards once the changes mentioned in this article were made. However, to say that all special needs students can accomplish these standards after alterations I feel is not fair to say. Some special needs students need different standards all their own to adhere to their personal struggles academically regarding their disability.
