    For my grad course, I have to do a presentation on a hot topic/trend in an education. I'm having trouble coming up with something, particularly something that is relevant to me. If anyone has any ideas, please share! Any trend/hot topic will do, but it would be even better if it is related to elementary education, math education, special education, or some combination of the three. Thanks!

    Gender based classes....all boys in one class, and all girls in another.

    Hot trends

    1. Differentiation
    2. Common Core
    3. Data Based Instruction
    4. Flipping Classrooms
    5. Kagan Instruction

    Yes, most of these have been around awhile, but they are hot right now.

    For sped you could do some variation of full inclusion vs. resource or pull-out vs. push-in.

    Frameworks versus programs.

    New push that all PD is not a "program" that it is a framework and you do it all ready.

    I love the boys in my class... I love the girls in my class... but if somebody asked me to teach a class with ONLY third grade boys or ONLY third grade girls all year long, they'd see my backside walking out of that school!

    Anyway, the Response to Intervention model of LD eligibility vs the score-based discrepancy model might be an interesting way to go, as far as trends go.

    PBIS is driving me nuts.

    Personally I'd write about common core's focus on thinking and data interpretation versus the memorization of the last 10 years. I can't even begin to imagine how that will impact special ed...

    Oh, or PLC's. I left education for 2 years (2007-2009) and when I came back they asked me about PLC's in my interview. I had no idea what they were talking about. Now, that's all I hear...PLC this, PLC that. Teachers were participating in PLC's long before they were cool or had a name. ;)

    Inclusion and Universal Design for Learning are big here. Along with that comes multiple intelligences.
