Teaching Students Self-Determination Skills - 013524
This project is an activity of the statewide Secondary Transition/Post-School Results Network and sponsored by TEA. Its purpose is to increase student self-determination skills that will assist them with setting goals, making plans, and improving communication skills. Participating educators will gain knowledge, skills, and strategies for teaching goal setting, assisting students with expressing goals, and taking action to reach those goals. This three-part workshop will focus on the importance of self-determination as a critical set of skills for school and post-school success. Educators will learn online and paper/pencil assessments that have ample validity evidence to assess critical self-determination skills as part of each student's transition assessment battery. In addition, they will learn and explore no-cost, evidence-based materials to teach students critical skills.
