There is an overrepresentation of students with disabilities within the population of students excluded (i.e., suspended or expelled) from school.

Put simply, performance feedback involves a colleague or coach observing a teacher and providing specific feedback about the instruction to increase a…

Many teachers have difficulty supporting students with challenging behavior. Students who shout out, are frequently off task, have a tantrum, or don't follow directions can be disruptive and bring a teacher's lesson to a halt. Other students may struggle to communicate their needs. As a result, these students may engage in challenging behavior to…
