We Connect Now was developed in an effort to connect college students with disabilities and provide a virtual community to discuss important issues such as accessibility, scholarships, and research. My favorite part of the site is the “stories” section and I am also impressed with the many materials offered in Spanish.
Recently I had the pleasure of working on an exciting new training model with a high school district in the Chicago suburbs. After I told a few colleagues about it, they suggested posting it on the blog in case others want to try it out in their schools.
I just spent a few days with teachers in Colorado. The workshop was on collaboration and co-teaching and we talked a lot about conducting effective meetings. For instance, we discussed having clear starting and ending times, following an agenda, assigning time limits to agenda items, starting meetings with the follow-up from the previous meeting, and minimizing interruptions.
