New for the 2017-2018 School Year: Diagnostic Teaching Teams

In many schools there are students whose learning and/or behaviors seem difficult to understand; what we are doing is not working and we know it, but we don’t know what to do that will work. Teachers College Inclusive Classrooms Project (TCICP) staff are in many schools across the city and frequently help teachers and administrators problem-solve around students whose learning and/or behavior is complex and interwoven with many variables.

We think of these students as “anomalous learners,” and what unites the TCICP staff is our unwavering commitment to analyze these students’ barriers to learning and then build structures to foster dynamic learning opportunities. This year, for the first time, TCICP, with sponsorship by the New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE), invites schools to send a “diagnostic team” to meet with us and colleagues from across the city. We will engage in sustained, systematic, case-study analysis of students and collaboratively plan structures and approaches to try out in the classroom and school.
