How Embedded Instruction Can Help With Learning from Home
Learning from home often seems inaccessible and inefficient for our kids, but we can help make improvements with some creativity, collaboration, and flexibility. Embedded instruction is one creative teaching method that parents and educators can use together to ensure students meet their IEP goals during at-home learning (and when kids are in the classroom, too!).
In an article from the TIES Center’s virtual learning series, researcher Jessica Bowman, Ph.D., of TIES Center and the National Center on Education Outcomes explains how families can help their children practice academic skills in non-academic settings at home. Moreover, she tells us that parents can talk to teachers about adjusting assignments to encourage lessons through embedded instruction. Read on for some highlights and strategies for making embedded instruction work for your kiddo. (These tips were originally published at the start of the pandemic, but they are still useful and relevant for all kids who learn from home!)
