Prompt Levels, Wait Times and Assessment

https://edufolios.org/kzagotsis/prompt-levels-wait-times-and-assessment/

This post was partly inspired by a new relief teacher who shadowed me for the day a few weeks ago and partly by a conversation I had with some colleagues, including Giulia, who is working alongside me for part of this year as a 4th year Pre-Service Teacher.

 Planning and Co-Creating One of the targets I’d set myself after coming back from Educhange in September was to create a Digital Technologies differentiated unit plan for Term 4.  I’d expanded on my limited knowledge of coding, robotics etc and the question I had-if it was possible to teach these skills to students with intellectual disabilities-had […]

“Do you teach these kids curriculum? How?” I work closely with my students’ therapists, often sitting in on part of the session or taking the opportunity to practice ProloQuo2go. If they have worked in the classroom, we will have a short discussion about what they’ve achieved or any concerns they might have. It’s not compulsory […]

Four Components of Highly Structured Teaching

https://edufolios.org/kzagotsis/highly-structured-teaching/

Four Components of Highly Structured Teaching Highly Structured Teaching, an adapted version of TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children) underpins the practice of my classroom.  I first started learning about and implementing this approach in 2015, where I worked closely with S.P who had just undergone TEACCH training in America.  […]
