My project is a program proposal. The purpose of this project is to provide training for elementary school teachers on the topic of teaching kindergarten to 2rd grade students with handwriting difficulties or any student at risk of difficulty with handwriting. This is to fulfill the AOTA’s Centennial Vision to provide scientifically proven methods linking education, research, and practice as a school-based occupational therapist. This project is occupation based, reflects occupational therapist’s role as a scholarly practitioner as well as embraces the Centennial Vision and the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework.
The IRI according to Russell (2013) is a non-institutionalized individual assessment frequently built through the classroom educator. The student is requested that read progressively troublesome word records and reading entries. On the premise of this reading, the instructor decides the student 's utilitarian levels in reading. These inventories are frequently used to help instructors or clinicians in choosing suitable methods and approaches for students (Russell, 2013). The reliability of the IRI aids in providing a surfeit of data which helps educators in deciding a student’s independent, instructional, and frustration measures of reading; particular reading quality and shortcomings; learning of sight word vocabulary; spoken reading exactness,
For this assignment, I was expected to choose a topic that impacts elementary students so much that it often affects their ability to be fully engaged in academic learning. After selecting the topic, “Latch Key Kids,” I did some investigation and research. Then, I presented a twenty minute presentation, which was to use a technological presentation format. Expected information included a definition of the social issue, a description about how it often effects learning environments, and an explanation about the teacher’s role in supporting the student as he/she copes with this social issue. An activity for viewers was a required aspect of this
In the book, The Girl with the Brown Crayon by teacher Vivian Gussin Paley is based on her curriculum for her classroom activity that was an influence by the author Leo Lionni’s books. Her book shows us the discoveries with her students and about her own personal innovation toward her student and herself. Through this unit she based her activity on several of Leo Lionni’s book the class explores the themes of diversity and identity between themselves and others. This book approached issues with child-sensitive behavior issues and with the aspect of dual language learning also.

Over the last 30 years, establishing appropriate academic taxonomy disciplines for children with disabilities has been a challenge. However, the laws governing how we teach our students with disabilities and how we instruct them throughout the day is constructed by different legislations that have shaped the very existence of Special Education programs. All laws, in general, are to protect the student and family in the public school system by providing guidelines and legal aspects of the law are upheld through the child’s Individual Education Plan/Program (IEP), and policy and procedural safeguards. These safeguards outline the very essence of situational outcomes, compliance, and the necessary procedures in place for the parent to take action against the school district
To look into these two significant learning events in more detail, one must understand the theory behind occupational therapy, and in order to do this, a few terms and concepts need to be defined and discussed. According to the American Occupational Therapy Association, AOTA in 2008 and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists, WFOT in 2010, “occupational therapy is the art and science of helping people do the day-to-day activities that are important and meaningful for their health and
Reading Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird is crucial to the tenth grade English curriculum for the lessons it teaches students and the topics it brings forward for discussion that students must acknowledge and understand. The whole point of an education system is to provide students with the tools to become productive citizens. This idea fuels the curriculum for students as they begin with their primary education all the way until they conclude high school or even a higher level degree. It is crucial that the information taught to students includes social issues in societies of the past and the present, enabling them to be active members in discussions they may face in the future. To Kill a Mockingbird targets an issue that has stood
There are many reasons why we should teach children about the Holocaust in school in 8th grade. One of the reasons is the valuable skills they will learn. Students will learn to put themselves in other people's shoes and understand the decisions they make along with learning not to use prejudice or racism. A quote from an article at AnneFrank.org talks about the information and skills students can learn from a lesson about Anne Frank or the Holocaust. Students learn “Where anti semitism can lead to”, where “discrimination can lead to”, and discussing the “choices and dilemmas people faced during the war and also that history is not so clear cut.”
This service learning subject collaborative care in school health and safety consist different component for students to learn. We have lectures, presentations, online learning and group consultation. We are divided into groups for a unique service and the group members are from at least two different departments. In this reflective journal, I will first describe and express my feelings toward the whole learning process in this subject then the following will be my evaluation and reflection towards this whole learning process. Among this subject, I will choose several remarkable gains to elaborate in depth.
I also provide parents with pictures and descriptions of all the different activities that we do in our classroom. I try to explain to the families about what their child liked and disliked about each activity. Another avenue that we like to do to keep families in the loop about what goes on in our classroom is our newsletter that we send out to parents that has information about their child and what we have done in our classroom. • CG 4.2 How do you ensure that you are aware of what 's happening in each child 's home life?
IPTS 1C: understands how teaching and student learning are influenced by development (physical, social and emotional, cognitive, linguistic), past experiences, talents, prior knowledge, economic circumstances and diversity within the community Performance Activity 22: How does the teacher relate content to students’ lives? Ms. Boerema relates content to students; lives by asking students questions relating to students’ lives. The strategy she uses is relating content to prior knowledge.

Now that what I have learned from SED 125 has been dicussed, I’ll move to how this all changed how I think now. When I learned about the impact ableism has on people within a society that have a disability it really interested me. I took the knowledge that I learned about ableism and created a Civic Engagement letter for my First Year Seminar. I created a letter that address three different school districts RSU 40, RSU 13, and RSU 28 Special Education Departments, about bringing some alleviation of the ill effecfs of discrimination. The letter states that with the new knowledge I learned of UDL and Inclusive Education may allow teachers and faculty members alike to stop and think before they become the “ Tiny Tims or the Super Crips” in an educational society and create an environment of striving for fullest potential of each child.
In a essay by Nancy Mairs, the author argues that even though someone is disabled you do not need to treat them like they are their disability. Mairs support her claim by giving examples of how people treat her and how advertisers turn away from using disabled people in their commercials. Mairs purpose is to use catalogs, logical fallacy, and illusion in order to show that disable and able-bodied people are very alike. Based on the use of illusion, simile, and euphemism, Mairs is writing for the educated yet common
The Americans with Disability Act (ADA), was passed by Congress in 1990. Our country just recently celebrated the ADA’s 25th anniversary, commemorating the progression that our nation has made towards ensuring equality for those with disabilities. Though many strides have been taken, we still have quite a long way to go, namely in the aspects of transportation and employment. Over the last 25 years, our society progressed towards being more accessible towards all; ADA standards were implemented across the nation, however, there was resistance.
