A Guide for the Development of Creativity in Special Schools
EQUALS are hard at work producing a "Guide for the Development of Creativity in Special Schools".
The guide foci are the promotion of a creative school ethos and curriculum that addresses the individual pupils' academic, social and emotional needs. We would welcome short video clips that can illustrate examples of such pupil progress. Notes that explain the context and pupil outcome should accompany the video clip.
EQUALS will supply parental consent forms.
All video clips will be acknowledged in the final publication. Clips should be sent via email or DVD/CD to: Paul Buskin, EQUALS, PO BOX 107, North Shields, Tyne & Wear, NE30 2YG or email@example.com
Mapping and Assessing Personal Progress
MAPP is a suite of materials developed by the Dales School, North Yorkshire to facilitate the planning, assessment and recording of progress in relation to personal learning intentions. In particular it provides a way of recognising lateral progression.
• EQUALS can offer in-house training in a number of areas of expertise. Our trainers have spent many years in the field of special education and have wide experience and knowledge in a number of areas.
