The student assessed, AJ Jordan, is a fourth grade student. He was referred to special education mid-second grade due to an increase in behavioral difficulties. These behaviors significantly impacted his ability to access the academic curriculum, interrupted the learning of others and, he was hospitalized due to an increase of unsafety in the home. AJ was assessed by the special education team and, it was determined that he met the requirements of Emotionally Disturbed, one of the thirteen recognized, academic disabilities. It was then determined that the regular education classroom was not the least restrictive environment and, AJ was referred to a self-contained behavior program housed in the same school.

A Child Called “It” by Dave Pelzer is the tragic story of Dave Pelzer’s childhood from ages four to twelve (Pelzer, xi). By defying all odds Dave survived his highly abusive alcoholic mother who referred to him not as a child but as an “it” (Pelzer, 30, 140). From being punched, forced to eat ammonia, and even stabbed, Dave’s story is regarded as one of the worst child abuse cases ever in California history (Pelzer, 3, 74, 87, book blurb). Dave’s mom was not always an abusive witch. According to Dave, “In the years before I was abused, my family was the “Brady Bunch” of the 1960’s”
William Primrose was a violist. He was born in Glasgow, Scotland on 23 August 1904.

At school Most Americans believe that a good education saves lives. Even so, something happens when money is required. People start wearing sweatshirts with the words embellished on them “college is for suckers” (Hrabowski). Many people would agree, “It is a well-known fact that in America, public schools never have enough money to run, and colleges and universities are expensive.” The main reasons that schools cut anything are because of budget deficits”(1).
“And yet where in your history books is the tale/ Of the genocide basic to this country 's birth/ Of the preachers who lied, how the Bill of Rights failed/ How a nation of patriots returned to their earth.” This quote succinctly describes the suffering Aboriginal peoples have endured since European settlers arrived in North America and the lack of education about Residential Schools in Canada. The history of Residential Schools is important to the future of Canada and to understand Canada’s past.
Have you ever felt sleepy during the day? Everybody needs a good night's rest in order to have a good day. Do you know any middle schoolers who would not love an extra thirty minutes of sleep? Most kids in middle school wish that their schools would start later. Schools at every level in the U.S. are struggling with this debate.
I had one defining experience that really showed my transition from childhood to adult hood. I had the fantastic opportunity to participate in a residential high school, the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, and the first year I had attended this school was my junior year. Going there I had known what I was required of both academically and artistically because I had already attended both of the summer intensives that they provided for my vocal performance. But my junior year is when I had experienced this change into my adult life and when I had left behind my childhood.
Looking back, I remember one time in fourth grade when the teachers made me stay inside from recess because I did not finish my assignment. I was so disappointed and jumpy all day. Sadly, schools today are so worried about being the best and getting the best possible test scores on standardized tests that they overlook their students’ needs and desires, like having recess time. Although this may seem like a good idea, the students are not benefitting because their attention spans only last so long until they are no longer able to absorb any more information. For this reason, kids of all ages should have recess whether they like it or not because it is a great way to improve social skills, physical fitness, academic performance, and reduce
Situation: I was looking over my son's grades, and noticed he had a few missing assignments that were impacting his grades. My feelings: I was angry at first, but then, I felt guilty about my anger because this was to be expected to some degree. Middle school is new to him. The transition process can take some time getting used to. Especially, coming from spending the majority of a day in one class, now, switching every 45-50 minutes between 7-8 classes.
