Strategies and Supports to Address the Hidden Curriculum – Part 2
Brenda Smith Myles, Ph.D.
Once it has been determined that specific social skills are missing, the next step is to ensure that planned instruction is provided using evidence-based practices. This presentation will overview a number of strategies and supports that can be used to teach the hidden curriculum to ensure a socially competent student. These strategies and supports can be implemented in general and special education settings and used at the elementary and secondary levels.
At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1. Name strategies that support the instruction of hidden curriculum items.
2. Match strategies to learner characteristics.
3. Describe how to implement strategies into the learner's day.
