Mr. Miller could also choose the Mixed Scanning Model. Using this model would allow Mr. Miller to review the mission of the school, determine whether ability grouping is aligned with the mission, and select an alternative that reflects the mission. 3. What action, if any, should Principal Miller take to demonstrate that he is an educational leader who treats people fairly, equitably, and with dignity and respect? Following Standard 3, Principal Miller should involve families and other stakeholders in the decision-making process.
For example, they conduct formative assessment. Formative Assessment is part of our instructional process. It provides the information needed to adjust teaching and learning while they are happening. In this sense, formative assessment informs both teachers and students about student understanding at a point when timely adjustments can be made. These adjustments help to ensure students achieve, targeted standards-based learning goals within a set time frame.
Inclusion means an all-embracing societal ideology. Regarding individuals with special education and disabilities, inclusion secures opportunities for students with disabilities to learn alongside their non-disabled peers in classrooms. Inclusion is also an educational practice of educating children who have disabilities in classrooms with other children who have no disabilities. The best practice for special education students in a classroom starts with the teacher. “The first step for the beginning teacher is to understand what “special needs” means and who exactly are the children with special educational requirements” (Weissman & Hendrick, 2014, p. 121).
The aim of Tier 2 is to catch students’ problems early, provide basic targeted interventions within the general education environment, and prevent long-term negative impact. The goal of a Tier 2 intervention is to support students in meeting grade level benchmarks and catching up to their same aged peers through evidence-based interventions. Examples of Tier 2 interventions are extra reading supports, behavior charts, or home-school notes. After continuous progress monitoring, a problem-solving team may then decide to place a student back into Tier 1, continue Tier 2 interventions, or consider evaluating the student for more intensive Tier 3 services. Ideally, if early intervention is working well at Tiers 1 and 2, only about 5% of children should need services at the intensity of Tier 3.
Once the practitioner has reviewed all the information, they can decide whether a common assessment is the way forward and will need agreement from the child and/or their family. Assess those needs: gathering and analysing information on strengths and needs using CAF. The practitioner must have discussions with the child, and their family if appropriate, and bring in information other practitioners have provided about the case. This information must all be recorded onto the CAF form, signed by the child or parent on the final version of the assessment form. The National eCAF makes sure that practitioners complete a certain number of fields when recording information to ensure consistency and a minimum standard across the board.
This modality provides techniques for the social worker to strengthen the parents’ perspective of Tracey’s through reframing and role plays. The examination of the foster family structure could open discussions about traditions, subsystems or external supports that could ease Tracey’s transition into the foster family
The first pillar discusses the terms of an Individualized Education Program (IEP). Parents are present on the IEP team once the child qualifies as having a disability to help develop a plan. Parents are considered to be equal members of the IEP team along with the school staff. The outlined plan designates supplementary services that should be provided, lists the student’s performance, and describes how the student’s disabilities may affect their academics. This aspect of IDEA allows families to be involved in ways that explicitly provide choices and input into decisions.
This monitoring is used to determine changes in how the child is taught, continuing progress monitoring throughout instruction and evaluating the changes. Involving the parent throughout the process and following the timelines of IDEA 2004, unless both the parent and teacher agree to
Article Review: “Counseling Children: Working with Families” I have always had a desire to work with children in the counseling profession. From this article, I have learned that if I work with children, more than likely I will have to work with families. I have gotten a better understanding of how much parents, siblings, or other close families members influence a child’ behavior, whether short-term or chronic. Also, I acquired knowledge about the Quick Assessment of Family Functioning that assists in determining an appropriate level of care for children and their families. This article discusses available resources for counselor seeking to counsel children and explores the various types of approaches for counseling children and their family.
Testing and assessment are given to students to not only help them on a personal/ social level but also to help the school determine where their students stand academic wise. The counselors and administrators can use the results to implement programs to better the areas that need improvement in the school and also attain achievement
An individualized education program (IEP) is a plan developed jointly with a school and family with the goal to helping the student succeed. It is designed uniquely to meet the student’s individual needs, and is reviewed periodically though the school year. It must be in effect before special education services are provided for the student. 7. Educational services offered under Part B of IDEA are the responsibility of the school systems.
This student will be able to participate in a regular education environment during reading. The third component of IDEA is individualized education program known, as IEP. The IEP is an educational plan created by the student 's parents and by professional educators consisting of specific criteria for students in the special education program. A comprehensive assessment tool furnishes academic or behavioral growth measure that aligns with IEP goals, content area objectives, and national standards; and it enables teachers to identify trends toward meeting these expectations and monitor them.

This will give the staff the opportunity to ask parents/carers about any ideas relating to the learning environment or management of the setting. Also in my setting the parents would work alongside the
