The definitive guide for mentoring special education teachers

The national shortage and exceptionally high attrition rate of special education teachers are impediments to serving students with special needs. Given that only 64 percent of special education teachers have access to a mentor compared with 86 percent of general education teachers, this book meets an essential need for attracting, retaining, and supporting special educators. The authors provide a wealth of research-based tools for professional developers to use in multiple settings, including schools with culturally and linguistically diverse students. Topics covered include:

  • RTI and positive behavior support
  • Planning and conducting IEP meetings
  • Assuming emerging responsibilities in today’s inclusive schools
  • Mentoring strategies specific to special educators’ needs
  • Differentiation of instruction and classroom organization
  • Working with paraprofessionals
  • Collaboration with parents and professionals

Centered on a toolkit of planners, templates, checklists, and case studies, Mentorship of Special Educators is a step-by-step guide for mentoring teachers of students with special needs. Each chapter provides specific activities designed to facilitate understanding of a key topic in special education. This resource is full of helpful devices that teachers and mentors can use to advance learning for all students.
