PA’s Alternate Eligible Content is the cornerstone of standards-aligned content, instruction, and assessment for students with significant cognitive disabilities. This session will provide participants an opportunity to examine content and practices that lead to meaningful, challenging, yet attainable targets for lifelong learning and success for students eligible for the PASA. Participants will explore and develop content targets aligned to alternate eligible content, review essentialized examples, and learn how to apply them to meaningful instruction. Changes with the 2018 PASA will be shared and discussed.
