Welcome back, everyone. Hopefully, you had a great summer and are off to a great start to the 21-22 school year. As we mentioned at the Regional Transition Network, each month our resources will focus on one of the 5 areas of the Taxonomy of Transition Programming. The 5 areas are; Student Focused Planning, Family Engagement, Program Structures, Interagency Collaboration, and Student Development. For September, we will be focusing on Student Focused Planning.
Student Focused Planning Resources
This is a very short video about Empathy Maps. While Empathy Maps may not seem like a direct link to Student Focused Planning, you will know how you can use these or adapt these maps to focus on a student’s PINS. These maps also show that we need to focus on all the student’s needs, including those SEL needs. This can also be a great way to get to know your students and use this data to differentiate instruction.
