What do we do with our exceptional students when our doors are closed?
It has been a little more than a week since the trend for mass closing of onsite instruction in the Pk-12 and Higher-Ed environments became a norm.
A recent article discusses the need to address serving for our special populations. Please keep in mind it is not only those with exceptional needs that may be on the low end of achievement. We also must make sure we address the exceptional students on the other end of that category.
Communities also must work to make lessons and resources available for those with emotional, social, visual, or physical needs. The article was written on 3/12 and is even more applicable today.
The US Department of Education put out this additional guidance.
Also, Michigan Virtual has some good suggestions as well when it comes to pedagogical considerations.
