The documentary mentions that there are very few spaces available to get into a “good” school. In the film, the director follows five different students. All of these students want a better education. In the start of the film, some of the students are in bad schools, like Anthony, who lives in Washington, DC. His school is considered a drop-out factory, where a large amount of people attending the school will quit.
On October 30th of 1990, President George H.W Busch signed the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA act) into place forevermore levelling the educational playing field for all students especially the ones with disabilities. The IDEA act is the most important bill and or decision by our government to help all students get the most appropriate and equal education. Disabled students should get the most appropriate and equal education because of the IDEA act. Before the IDEA act was passed only 1 in 5 disabled students were able to get an education because many schools excluded children with disabilities as they believed they were not fit for a school setting. The IDEA act is the most important bill and or
Response to Intervention (RTI): A Guide for Family Members and Staff Developed for use in k-5 schools Purpose: This guide will outline the “what”, “where”, “who”, “why”, and “how”s of RTI. What is Response to Intervention (RTI)? Response to Intervention (RTI) is an educational model, designed for use in both general education and special education,to advance educational outcomes for all students and aids struggling students by focusing on how students respond to individualized intervention. RTI relies on early identification to support students academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs by targeting instruction interventions, at increasing levels of intensity, as soon as those needs become apparent. Progress is closely monitored to assess both the learning rate and level of performance of individual students.
Multiple intelligence theory active learning, technology and multi cultural education are among some of the techniques that may be applied to teaching in the class room. In addition to teaching modifications, teachers must include the parents in the class room activities. Teachers should be familiar with the obstacles they may face when implementing the techniques. These methods also have future implications in the higher education setting. Professors may utilize these techniques in their lectures.
I will use this knowledge to develop meaningful, integrated, and active learning and play experiences to develop the whole child for students in early childhood through fourth grade. I will have a philosophy of high academic expectations, fairness in the learning community and developmental responsiveness, generated by positive and productive learning environments. The importance of helping students in early childhood through twelfth-grade apply life skills is something I must know. I need to be aware of the rationale for proper middle-level education and how middle-level schools are organized to address the characteristics and requirements of young adolescent students. I will be able to see the typical challenges that students will face during later childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood, and be able to help them
The NMPED (2014) defines the response to intervention (RTI) as: “an organizational framework by which schools assess student needs, strategically allocate resources, and design and deliver instruction to all students within the school. An RTI framework addresses student achievement and positive behavior for all students by the use of appropriate, research-based instruction and/or interventions. Student progress is monitored over time and then that data is used to guide instructional decisions and behavioral strategies” (Public Education Department - State of New Mexico. (n.d.)). RTI is a new approach to identify a learning disability.
" TEACCH is based on research evidence that suggests children with ASD are visual learners. It is a structured learning model focused on visual schedules,work systems,task and organization. The main idea is that this type of visual scheduling and organization alleviate difficulties with transition,organization and communication. Physical organization and scheduling are two of the three main components of the TEACCH model. In basic terms this means having the classroom set up so students clearly understand where they should be and when.
For example, this form of assessment can be used on a larger scale for the purpose of identifying where a school stands in comparison to other schools. Finally, in the film study option I witnessed how Assessment for Learning, or summative assessment was applied to student presentations. In this scenario summative assessment was use in performance task. The form of assessment I observed was task specific, meaning students were asked to complete a task that will test a specific skills. Often this form of assessment is accompanied by a rubric, which teachers can use as a guide for grading, and students can use a check list they can refer to while completing the
Walking around the class, stretching, or stop working for a while helps to relax and recompose a child (Kluth, 2010). 10. Inclusion By observing what their peers do, autistic children are able to learn appropriate behaviors from them. If students are to learn to socialize, they will be required to be present where their peers are and listen to and learn how they socialize. If students will require specialized support for academic success, teachers will need to assess the learners’ functioning in the inclusive classroom to know the types of support needed (Kluth, 2010).
School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life. Educators have control over numerous factors that influence motivation, achievement and behaviour of students. They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences.
