During our webcast, we will be discussing the benefits of a co-taught classroom and having the students take an active role in their education. We will share how we work together with the students to provide them with the tools and resources they need to be successful. Our webcast will focus on getting students to be proactive in recognizing their strengths and weaknesses. By doing so, students will be able to participate in their own Individualize Education Plan (I.E.P.) meetings and develop a stronger understanding of their personal learning goals.
