Session Detail

Program Planning for Active Learning
Online Course Via Bridge

Parents and educators often express frustration in developing the IEP for students who are using an Active Learning approach. How does the Functional Scheme relate to present levels of academic achievement and functional performance (PLAAFP)? How do you write goals and objectives that specify an Active Learning approach, align to the general curriculum and also address the Expanded Core Curriculum? What about the older student who is in the process of moving out of school into adult life? Does Active Learning have a place in Transition Services? Does an Active Learning approach mean a student must be placed in a self-contained classroom?

This self-paced course serves two purposes:
As a support to educational staff who must develop the Individualized Education Program for a student that meets the requirements outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). As a support to family members who want to advocate for their child to have an Active Learning approach as a part of their program and ensure the Individual Education Program (IEP) is developed so this will happen. It shares information about the development of the IEP and discusses how the Active Learning approach may be documented in the IEP. Content that is covered includes:

• Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance (PLAAFP)
• Goals and Objectives
• Supplementary and Related Services and Supports
• Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports
• Special Factors
• Transition Services
• Placement
• Alignment of the IEP with the general (standard) curriculum
• Addressing the Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) for students with visual impairments
