The Virtual Ignite curriculum is created for the remote/virtual learner, digital versions of workbook exercises, with shortened lessons to accommodate shortened schedules.
Ignite is designed to teach adolescents and young adults (ages 12-16) with disabilities the skills necessary to become active participants in designing their futures. Through self-exploration, knowledge development and hands-on practice, the Ignite curriculum actively builds the mindset and skills necessary for students to become self-advocates. This self-advocacy training will benefit students in a variety of settings including their transition to high school, IEP meetings and Transition meetings.
This comprehensive program consists of eight lessons designed to be taught during a 45-50 minute instructional period. Each lesson engages students in active cross-curricular learning through the use of a variety of instructional methods, including: multimedia presentations, personal inventories, hands-on activities, games, class discussions, and small group work.
