Description:

Pairing the Expanded Core Curriculum with project-based learning (also known as inquiry-based instruction) creates an ideal platform to teach students with visual impairments and deaf-blindness.

  • Case studies of students in elementary and secondary school
  • Practical tips for IEP goals
  • Portfolio projects for young students or students who have mild to moderate additional disabilities

Presenter:

Rachel Anne Schles, Teacher of the Visually Impaired, NLCSD (National Leadership Consortium in Sensory Disabilities) Scholar, University of Pittsburgh
