With being a special education teacher... or any teacher at this point
in time... we know how important it is to document every. single. thing.
that happens for each of our students. While it is super time
consuming, it saves us in the long run (dare I say the dreaded words due process).
So let's talk about documenting inclusion services today :)
And that means us teachers and paraprofessionals need to document their inclusion service time. Every time. Every day.
You can see more of my color coded classroom in this blog post.
This helps myself, my paras, and the general ed teachers daily to remember what accommodations each student has and if we are utilizing them. And if we notice a trend that a student has not been utilizing or no longer needs a certain accommodation, we can make appropriate recommendations at their next IEP meeting.
At the end of each week, we take the documentation papers and place them in their binders for safe keeping. It's a super simple system that is a quick, effective way to document inclusion service times.
