In With the New; Out With (Some of) the Old

As we start a new year, I'm still reflecting on the last one. Sometimes you have to look backward to look forward, I suppose. (Cue "History Repeating.")

Looking over what I wrote about in this space over the course of the year, and what interested readers the most, I have the feeling I will be revisiting many of these subjects in 2012.

One issue I just wrote about—using response-to-intervention in identifying students with disabilities—was also the subject of another blog post earlier this year. My colleague Christina Samuels used to have this gig, and one of her last posts before she took on other duties addressed the same subject. It was the most viewed post on this blog for the year.

Also in the top 10 was this post about neuroscience research being used with students with disabilities. Look for more on this topic from me in the coming weeks.

Here are the rest of the most-read posts of the year:

3. Special Education Court Decisions on the Rise;
4. Rules Finally Issued on Infants, Toddlers With Disabilities;
5. Q&A on Co-Teaching with CEC President Marilyn Friend: Part I;
6.Shortage of Special Education Teachers Includes Their Teachers;
7. Senate Bill Would Increase Federal Support for RTI (Note: Another post about RTI.);
8. 'Serving All Kids, No Exceptions';
9. More English-language Learners, More ELLs with Disabilities?; and
10. ESEA Proposals, NCLB Waivers Trouble Special Ed. Advocates.

Looking ahead, what are you curious to read about in this space? It's obviously A-OK if it's something I've touched on in the past.
