Special Education edTPA Preparation

SCALE has developed a new version of Making Good Choices (MGC) to provide particular support for candidates preparing for edTPA in Special Education. Following the same format as the original MGC, the new version poses questions and provides answers that guide candidates to consider their own teaching contexts and the particular strengths and challenges of the students they teach. The Special Education MGC explains and provides examples of the curricular areas of special education and associated learning targets for focus students. The document is available in the Resource Library. edTPA coordinators and associated program faculty can download the MGC and distribute to candidates preparing for edTPA.
