It becomes the blueprint for the student’s education for the current school year.” I think looking at the IEP in this light is so incredibly important. If teachers and parents understand that it is both the “blueprint” and an accountability tool, the IEP will be more effective and meaningful. Every student deserves to have the best possible education, and the IEP helps to ensure that this happens among students with disabilities.
I feel that the consequence policy had appropriate consequences for different violations, I thought that having different consequences for different levels of offenses was a good idea for the elementary school. Consequences are extremely important for students to learn how to behave and what is and is not appropriate for them to do in school. The curriculum enforcement policy ties directly into my group (the curriculum committee). The curriculum enforcement policy had different parts that were incorporated into it that all passed, most of the policy focused directly on having the teachers collaborate with one another. As a future educator I agreed with the policy immensely, I feel that in order to have a successful teaching staff collaboration is key.
As a future educator, she wants to be able to learn everything she can to be equipped with how to help her future students. This will help her, as well as her students to succeed in the classroom. As a Liberal Studies major with an emphasis in History the author has learned how to teach both in a curriculum that integrates both subjects and how creating a lesson plan can help students understand what multiculturalism is. One thing that she feels was not taught during her time at CSUMB, is how to take on difficult situations in the classroom with different
One of the reasons I chose to the book Other People’s Children by Lisa Delpit was because I want to be aware of the stereotypes and prejudices this books might uncover that I had and didn’t know I has. Teaching in a DLI program there is big diversity in our school and community. I want to be able to be culturally competent and be able to eliminate my cultural assumptions. I want to be able to understand where my students are and families are coming from so I can adjust my teaching methods and strategies. I thought it was very interesting how in her introduction she talks about how the educational system in this country is more focused on the standardized tests, scripted lessons and mandated classroom management strategies that they seem
I was able to work with a couple of the children, which opened my eyes to the different children I will be helping, even though they all are experiencing homelessness. I worked with kids who are experiencing difficulties meeting grade level requirement, which I hope to make a difference at the end of my intern. This week I hope to get a better understanding on how I could help this student before they fall back any further. In hopes to help this student make it to the next grade, I will be asking my site supervisor advice on how I could make it possible. I believe this would be one of my goals before the end of the
D. Relevancy Statement: This topic is relevant to everyone because special education impacts not only students with disabilities, but their family, friends, and peers. E. Preview of Main Points: 1. Ways in which special education is viewed by society and the background of the subject. 2. Effects of including special education students in the general education classroom with their peers.
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
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.”
For fact, they see them struggling. Though I believe the rare benefits to having inclusion in the class with change there are always challenges. Yet I believe the teachers will have the biggest change as they will learn how to manage a classroom with students that learn on different levels. “Part of the problem, I think, was that we were desegregating with- out any regard whatsoever for if that particular child belonged in that particular class” (Carpenter, 2008, p. 136). Now that is a major challenge, placing students in the wrong setting of classes, can be damaging to the students.
As a news reporter for education, Kohli (2016) states that it is significant that reaching out trauma counseling early before students are seriously affected by PTSD or depression. She projects her value that a school should have an on-site social worker to provide psychological support, and to address the need of mental resources for students. However, this depends on school budgets and priorities. I think Kohli (2016) makes a strong point that schools should provide mental support regularly week by week or day by day, but not just after large-scale traumas such as shootings. It is true that the need for trauma counseling has been recognized in the United States after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown.
The article, Practice and Critique, informs educational readers (and students becoming future educators) about the importance of the Common Core Standards. This article especially defines the techniques’ importance throughout specific subjects, such as Language Development. Over the last few years, the common core standards have been adapted to fit the “average” classroom setting, with its goal of preparing each student with the necessary curriculum needed in order for them to succeed in college and/or within the workplace. Though this strategy has often been criticized by many throughout the public, the article hopes to demonstrate that the Common Core Standards are exactly what is needed in order for each child to to be able to obtain and
“It’s not what you say it’s how you say it” that’s how the saying goes right? This is true when talking to people in general. Most people think that people with disabilities are word sensitive which is not always the case. People go way too far when labeling what is and what is not acceptable. In all honesty I believe we all have a form of disability some may be more prominent then others and are just well hidden; so how would you feel if someone was labeling you?
