More Information

CEC Preparation Program Report Developer Workshop Leader: Joni Baldwin, Ed.D., University of Dayton, Ohio In this interactive workshop, you will learn the components of CEC Preparation Program Recognition Reports that will be reviewed using CEC’s Professional Preparation Standards and submitted as part of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) Accreditation process. All registrants will receive CEC program developer resources. You will come away better prepared to develop program performance-based assessments, align them with the CEC content standards, and prepare the final program report.

This workshop is free for approved participants.   CEC Preparation Program Report Reviewer Workshop Leader: Christy Hooser, Ph.D., Eastern Illinois University, Charleston


This workshop will train you to review program reports using CEC’s Professional Preparation Standards submitted to CEC as part of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) accreditation process. Principles for and examples of performance-based program review, and strategies for reviewing reports and for successfully writing the sections of the CEC Program Recognition Review will be discussed. This workshop is offered at no cost for approved registrants. Please submit a reviewer application and CV (found at Volunteer Program Reviewer Resources | Council for Exceptional Children) to be approved for this workshop. All approved registrants are expected to review program reports in one or more of the next two review cycles.

**Participants Will Register for Session 1 OR 2 AND Session 3 OR 4***


Session 1: Practicas Baseadas en Evidencia: Recursos y estrategias para maestras(os) de estudiantes bilingues con dificultades de aprendizaje

In this session teachers will learn about best practices and resources for working with learning disabilities. This session will be delivered in Spanish and will cover a broad spectrum of topics including reading, math, and behavior. Dr. Miriam Ortiz, SMU


Session 2: Changing the Locus of Control: Culturally, Linguistically, and Ability Relevant Lesson Plans for Preservice Teachers

Is your triangle upside down?  Are less than 80% of all students or student groups meeting benchmarks?  Are more than 15-20% needing tier 2, and more than 5% needing tier 3 interventions?  The dominant influences of the monolingual, monocultural, and monoable paradigms at schools limit who can be successful in core instruction, pushing more culturally, linguistically, and academically diverse youth into tier two and three interventions. In this session, we go beyond the questioning of the efficacy of core instruction and offer concrete steps toward a more culturally, linguistically, and ability-relevant pedagogy. Dr. Steve Przymus, Texas Christian University, Assistant Professor of Bilingual Education Dr. Endia Lindo, Texas Christian University, Associate Professor of Special Education Dr. Michael Faggella-Luby, Texas Christian University, Professor of Special Education


Session 3: Best practices in Reading for students with Learning Disabilities who are English Learners

This presentation will cover best practices in the identification and remediation of English learners who are experiencing reading difficulties. Current evidence of how to best support English learners in the classroom will be presented, as well as research-supported instructional practices. Dr. Emily Solari, University of Virginia


Session 4: Optimizing Practice Opportunities in Mathematics to Help Students with Dyscalculia Retain Essential Concepts and Skills

Do your students continue to struggle with remembering important mathematical concepts and skills? Teachers spent a great deal of energy focused on helping students learn new content. While this is important, many students fail to remember what they learned. In this session you will learn a powerful yet simple practice strategy that can significantly boost your students' retention of important concepts and skills. Dr. Paul J. Riccomini, The Pennsylvania State University
