Accommodating in Science

This week I had the privilege of sharing with the Gladstone Science Department a framework (and evidence that supports it) that allows for all students to experience more success in science keeping in mind that change should be manageable.

In practice, any accommodations that we make end up benefiting all our students, not just those at the margins.

Links to the overview, handouts and presentation are all listed below the following definition.
