Collaboration: An Essential Tool for Inclusive Teaching Practices


Collaboration: An Essential Tool for Inclusive Teaching Practices
Wednesday, February 17, 2021 | 7-8pm ET  
FREE for NAEA Members; $49 for non-members

As art educators we are the inclusion pioneers, as we have always welcomed all students into the art room. This can be a daunting task, and we can feel isolated—but we are not alone! During this webinar we will unleash the power of collaboration as a tool to assist us in succeeding for all our students in our daily practice. Together, we will examine the role of intervention specialists, paraeducators, and families. We will also take a look at the variety of support materials and organizations ready to assist us in collaboration.
