High-Leverage Practices: Fundamental to Effective Teaching
In partnership with the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR), the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) has developed and published a set of high-leverage practices (HLPs) for special educators and teacher candidates.
The HLPs are organized around four aspects of practice:
Explore HLP Foundations
Resources designed to support and strengthen educators understanding of the high-leverage practices for students with disabilities — including how they were developed, what they are, the supporting evidence (as available), and how they can be used in classrooms.
Access Professional Development Materials
Resources intended to be used as professional learning activities for educators to increase their knowledge, understanding, and use of the HLPs for students with disabilities.
Resources to support teachers’ acquisition of how to use the high-leverage practices through scaffolded opportunities to practice - increasing in complexity and with less support provided overtime until mastery is developed.
