Inclusion and the Common Core State Standards Inclusion and State Assessment Inclusion and Teacher Evaluation Results Driven Accountability SWIFT Resources
Define what a student in a particular grade should know and be able to do in math and English Language Arts.
Standards - Kindergarten RL.K.1 With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text. RL.K.2 With prompting and support, retell familiar stories, including key details. Essential Elements - Kindergarten EE.RL.K.1With guidance and support, identify details in familiar stories. EE.RL.K.2 With guidance and support, identify major events in familiar stories.
CCCS – Grade 4 RL.4.2 Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text; summarize the text. RL.4.3 Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific detail in the text (e.g., a character’s thoughts, words, or actions). Essential Elements – Grade 4 EE.RL.4.2 Identify the theme or central idea of a familiar story, drama or poem. EE.RL.4.3 Use details from the text to describe characters in the story.
All students are general education students first (IDEA partnership)
‘Students with disabilities…must be challenged to excel within the general curriculum and be prepared for success in their post-school lives, including college and/or careers.” (corestandards.org/Application to Students with Disabilities)
Students IEP goals and objectives must, as appropriate, be related to the core curriculum content standards through the general education curriculum unless otherwise required…
Instruction must incorporate: › An Individualized Education Program (IEP) which includes annual goals aligned with and chosen to facilitate their attainment of grade- level academic standards. (corestandards.org/Application to Students with Disabilities)
Some students with the most significant cognitive disabilities will require substantial supports and accommodations to have meaningful access to certain standards in both instruction and assessment, based on their communication and academic needs. (corestandards.org/Application to Students with Disabilities)
All students means every student › What practices facilitate engagement of every student in the class?

What ‘embedded’ ‘essential’ or ‘foundational skills’ within the grade level learning objectives does the student need to learn to make progress toward grade level expectations? What skills does the student need to learn to meet ‘other’ needs in order to make progress (e.g., social, organizational, behavioral skills)?
