Have students write a collaborative poem or story using Twitter, IM, Edmodo or Facebook. This way, authors can contribute one word, one line, or several paragraphs.

This website is dedicated to promoting inclusive schooling and exploring positive ways of supporting students with autism and other disabilities. Most of my work involves collaborating with schools to create environments, lessons, and experiences that are inclusive, respectful, and accessible for all learners.


DAY 2: Visual Timers

Posted on December 03, 2011 in News

Visual timers are a great gift for teachers and for children themselves. Educators can use these as a classroom management tool.

Time Tracker Timer

They are perfect for young children, and a fun (and effective) novelty item for middle and high school classrooms too. At home, they can be used to teach time management, set limits and goals, and encourage independence.

    Love your ideas for inclusive education! I wonder if you would elaborate on how the visual timer could be used for a middle schooler’s goal setting?
