Description

Special Education

Authentic Instruction and Work-Based Learning


About the School

P.S. 811 is a multi-site District 75 school, whose main site is in Little Neck, Queens. P.S. 811 promotes challenging, educational, and functional opportunities so all students become fully participating, fulfilled members of a multicultural society. The school maximizes students’ independence and potential in inclusive environments within our public schools and the global community.


About the Visit

At this Showcase, visitors will learn how P.S. 811 assesses students’ strengths and preferences in order to design instructional and practical work-based experiences that develop students’ proficiency and independence over time. Visitors will see how students' interests and work experiences are woven into the social studies, English Language Arts (ELA), and math curricula. Additionally, visitors will learn how P.S. 811 partners with families and the community. At the end of the day, visitors will have the opportunity to think about how these practices could be incorporated into their own work.
