Setting Up Classrooms to Increase Engagement

Engagement in instruction has been noted as a high leverage practice by the Council for Exceptional Children.  Consequently whether you are supporting students with disabilities in general education classrooms or running your own special education classroom, good instruction starts with the way the classroom environment is organized.  From planning instruction, creating the schedule and setting up the room, to working with classroom staff to implement a variety of educational practices, these resources will help you engage your students in activities, minimize challenging behavior and work effectively with your classroom team.

Meet Christine Reeve


From running Autism Classroom Resources, to creating teacher resources on TeachersPayTeachers as Autism Classroom News, my passion has always been about bringing special educators together and helping them serve their students in the best ways they can. I have spent the last 20 years working with a wide variety of special education programs as a behavior specialist, an administrator, and primarily as a trainer and consultant. Teachers should never feel like they teach on an island. I want to change that by providing a site where special educators can come together to learn ways to make their jobs easier, to support each other, and to put the excitement back in their teaching.
