Lessons Learned from the Special Education Classroom
Review of Lessons Learned from the Special Education Classroom by Daniel Monfre, IB Math Teacher
I'm currently teaching at an international school in the Philippines and we recently selected Lessons Learned from the Special Education Classroom as our PLC's book study. Over the past couple months teachers from all grade levels, counselors, specialists, special ed teachers, and admin have met to discuss the chapters of the book. We have used the Questions that are provided in the book to guide our discussions. The process has led to some of the best conversations about school environment I have ever had. Our PLC is a diverse group of colleagues from all over the world and all having various roles in the school, still we have all found the resources, topics, and examples in the book to be very useful. I highly recommend that any one looking for professional growth to better serve all students read this book.
