Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners

Provides aspiring administrators with an understanding how a school can become a learning community to meet the needs of diverse learners. Specific needs of identified groups of learners are explored. Specifically the groups addressed are identified special education students, English language learners, students involved with 504 plans, and students identified as gifted and talented. Students engage in self-reflection to help gain an understanding of how their own actions impact and are interpreted in a diverse world. Candidates analyze their schools current support structure for the continuum of learners, learn about school-wide intervention, and consider what it would take to implement this type of model in their own school. Restricted to IA PRIN students only.
