Empowering Students with Disability History: A Workshop for Special Education Professionals

April 9 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm EDT

This one-hour workshop empowers Special Education teachers to foster supportive attention to disability and to support integration of disability history across the K-12 academic curriculum, by providing basic historical knowledge, free curriculum materials, and strategies for collaboration with elementary teachers and Social Studies and English Language Arts teachers across grades.

This workshop presents the long arc of disability history from early in American history through the Disability Rights Movement of the 1970s and 1980s up to today. Participants learn tools and strategies to provide students with the tools to self-determine their identity as persons with disabilities and to embrace an empowering model of disability. Participants also explore means to address disability in separate and integrated classrooms. And they access curriculum and resources to help integrate disability history across the curriculum. 

A replay of the webinar will be sent to all who register.

Thank you to Emerging America for partnering with us on this webinar!
