The Common Core classroom stresses student independence, not just the ability to accomplish tasks with the teacher. Yet, despite the rhetoric about increasing rigor and independence, Special Education and ESL teachers will continue to face the challenge of helping their students reach current expectations. Participants in this workshop will explore the literacy expectations of the CCSS, with a particular focus on how to differentiate for the needs of English Language Learners or Students with Disabilities. They will practice a repertoire of effective instructional routines that they can return to use the next day in their classrooms and share with co-teachers. *The morning mini-conference is focused on special education. The afternoon mini-conference focused on ELLs.
