This self-paced training by CCTS is designed to inform educators, adult service agencies, and families about inclusionary practices and partnerships between Special Education (SE) and Career Technical Education (CTE).
Participants will increase their knowledge of:
Module 1 begins with an introduction to the Center for Change in Transition Services (CCTS) and the Inclusionary Practices Project (IPP). It defines inclusive education and addresses some of the misconceptions that surround inclusionary practices.
Module 2 addresses the importance of collaboration and ideas for building partnerships between Special Education (SE) and Career Technical Education (CTE) teachers. It explores some of the common myths about CTE and offers facts that can support these partnerships. This module concludes with a series of video clips from local school leaders. They highlight strategies for building and strengthening relationships between SE and CTE with the goal of supporting students with disabilities.
To provide a shared understanding of Special Education (SE) for SE and Career Technical Education (CTE) teachers, this module begins with a broad overview of SE. It includes a summary of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process and the major components of the transition plan, including how they connect with the High School and Beyond Plan (HSBP) and the important role of the CTE teacher.
This module begins with an introduction to the benefits of co-teaching for both students and teachers. It outlines six models of co-teaching to consider for implementation, depending on the environment. It includes video clips from CCTS’s IPP Third Thursday Conversation on Co-Teaching (02/10/2021) where Special Education (SE) and Career Technical Education (CTE) practitioners from Evergreen Public Schools share their experiences with co-teaching.
The final module of this series explores the components of complex change.
