A Cognitive Strategy for Inclusion Classrooms

Learn a strategy designed to increase student achievement in your inclusive classroom by helping your students gain meaningful understanding of sophisticated concepts. This deep understanding of concepts is a critical ingredient for students to demonstrate mastery in written assessments. The RELATE Think Sheet is a content enhancement developed by Edwin Ellis shown to be an effective tool in raising achievement of students with learning disabilities and is a powerful way to help all students in inclusive settings. During the first half of the workshop, you will gain insight into the strategy's underpinnings and learn how to use it in your classroom. During the second half, you will have time to practice so you can leave ready to use RELATE in your middle or high school content area classroom.
