Coffee shop teaches students work, social skills
Students with disabilities at Rapid City Central High School in Rapid City, S.D., are learning real-world job and social skills as operators of an on-site coffee shop. Students are tasked with making the drinks, working the register and making deliveries to school staff members. "The experiences and the skills that they've gotten, I couldn't have possibly taught them in my classroom," special-education teacher Amy Heuston said.

Professional development benefits from in-class coaching
Research is showing in-class coaching support can boost teaching quality and student performance, yet it's often not a major part of a school district's professional-development program, writes Jack Gillette, dean of the graduate school of education at Lesley University, in Cambridge, Mass. Gillette writes in the commentary that such coaching programs should include, among other things, mastery of the material taught by teachers.

A member of the Teacher Leaders Network, Magiera shares tips about what she's learned, including the importance of teacher buy-in and supporting teachers through professional learning communities. She also writes about the need for a contingency plan -- for added expenses and unexpected failures.

AAP president elect: Doctors need more time to screen for autism
James Perrin, president-elect of the American Academy of Pediatrics, is calling autism and other developmental disorders one of the major epidemics facing U.S. children. "I think what we really want to be working on is recognizing that all of these conditions have grown tremendously in their prevalence over the last decade or so -- things like obesity, asthma, mental health conditions like depression and ADHD, and things like autism and other neurodevelopment disorders," Perrin said. "We want to make sure we're much better able to provide the kind of care that these children and their families need."
