This training is very helpful for novice special education teachers, general education teachers that have special needs students and administrators who want to refresh their staff on data collection. In this training we discuss who, where, when, and why we can collect data. This training discusses the common pitfalls of documentation for one to avoid. Also, this training covers para-educators and their role in the classroom. If you need ideas on how to best utilize your para-educators in your classroom, this is a good training for you. I outline teacher roles and para roles for one to implement a strategic and successful classroom. The following is a list of all the slides in the presentation/training.
