Teaching Tools & Materials

Select a tool to learn more about it—what it is, where to find it in the classroom, and how you can use it as a Teaching Artist. Use the filters to see if it is likely in the classroom or if you should bring it with you, and what specific need it might be addressing or support.

  • When choosing video clips, select clips that have captions available, and that represent a diverse group of people.
  • Put adaptive materials in with all of the other materials. (Don’t create a stigma around them.)
  • Have both skinny and thick markers available unless there’s a specific reason not to.
  • Set expectations for how fidgets can be used. Have a mix. Keep things clean.
  • Have unscented hand wipes in case of scent sensitivity or allergies.
  • Keep fidgets, headphones, and other tools in an easy-to-access but not highly visible place.
  • When planning a field trip or an activity outside the usual classroom space, be sure to plan for what adaptive tools/materials you will need to bring with you and which you may lose access to (e.g., non-portable tools like a SMARTboard).
