Planning for Students
Manitoba Education encourages all teachers to help students attain the highest possible level of academic excellence. This requires teachers to create classroom learning environments that can address a broad range of diverse learning styles and educational needs. Many of these are best addressed on a classroom basis while others require unique approaches designed to address the special needs of individuals or small classroom groups. Educational planning processes include both classroom-based and student specific approaches.
Success for all Learners: A Handbook for Differentiating Instruction
The purpose of this handbook is to provide practical help to educators seeking to develop more effective ways for all students to achieve learning outcomes identified for each subject area and grade. The Handbook is not available in electronic format. The handbook can be ordered from the Manitoba Textbook Bureau.
Individual Education Planning:
A Handbook for Developing and Implementing IEPs, Early to Senior
This handbook is intended to provide student service administrators, principals, classroom and resource teachers, and other professionals with an effective process for deciding which students require IEPs. It is also designed to assist educators in developing, implementing and evaluating these Individual Educational Plans.
From Challenges to Possibilities:
Planning for Behaviour
This is a planning resource that addresses the broad range of students with behavioural problems that are found in all schools. It offers a range of suggestions that can be implement at the school-wide level as well as the individual student level.
Behaviour Intervention Planning
This site provides information and examples on how the school team, together with service agencies, can develop an intersectoral treatment plan. This behaviour intervention planning process develops the school component of the treatment plan and is most effective when combined with services and supports provided directly to the student and/or family by service agencies.
Circle of Care Treatment Planning
This site provides an example of a "Circle of Care" Treatment Plan developed jointly by Educators, Family Services, and Mental Health to address the complex needs of a student with emotional/behavioural problems. The plan addresses the need for coordinated interventions in all of the student's living/learning environments with school-based interventions representing only one component of the "Circle of Care" plan.
