similarities and differences among students

Student Differences And Individual Learning Needs

Special education teachers play a significant role in the IEP process, delivery of services, and advocacy for students and their families. These teachers are teachers of content, classroom leaders, managers of behavior, consultants, case managers, advocates, and collaborators. Within these various responsibilities, it is also important to maintain confidentiality while still providing appropriate consultative services, delivery of instruction, and collaboration with faculty, staff, administration, and parents.

Because this course does not require you to have a fingerprint clearance card, your field experience must be completed before or after school, or during another designated time when students are not present.

In person or via phone, interview a certified special education teacher specific to a grade range relevant to your program of study. Be prepared to take notes, as these will be submitted as part of the assignment deliverable.

In the interview, address the following.

Note

In 250-500 words, reflect on what you learned from the interview and discuss the following:

  • Describe the unique needs of students with disabilities and the effects disabilities can have not just on students’ academic progress, but also on their social development, attitudes, interests, and values. Include discussion of additional factors related to culturally and linguistically diverse students.
  • Explain why it is critical for special education teachers and general education teachers to communicate, collaborate, and co-teach to meet the needs of students with disabilities. Include explanations why this is important not just for teaching students, but also in documenting and communicating information related to progress and meeting IEP goals.
  • Summarize why it is important to properly execute the IEP process and maintain confidentiality for students with disabilities. Include discussion of the challenges and dilemmas that can result when collaborating with general education teachers to ensure compliance in these areas.
  • Summarize what you learned from the interview and discuss how it can be applied in your future professional practice.

ACTIONX

ACTIONX

ACTIONX is a project designed to enhance your skills as a diversity leader through engaging in the Journey of Self-Discovery activities and a personal identity assessment. After completing the activities and assessment, you will create an action plan to improve your cultural competency.

Part One: 

In the past weeks you read Chapter 5 and learned about the Journey of Self-Discovery, which involves various self-exploration activities developed from the Grubb Institute’s Transforming Experiences Framework. As part of your ACTIONX project, you will complete three self-discovery exercises to gain insight into your journey towards cultural competence. Pay attention to your communication habits and personal attitudes as you complete these exercises.

Choose three of the following activities outlined in Chapter Five. Complete each of the three activities you chose. Take informal notes as you complete these and save the notes. You will record information about completing these later.

Group Identity Circle

LifeLine Graph

Images in the Media

Thinking About Multiple Dimensions of Diversity

The Power of Observation

Role: How Do I Want to Operate?

Part Two:

Using the models in Chapter Nine, there is an exercise outlined about identity statuses, so you need to complete that exercise. You will characterize your dominant and accessible identity statuses for race/ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation. Take notes as you do this because later you will write a narrative of what you discover.

These are the directions to complete the identity status exercise, provided by Dreachslin et. al. (2015):

Describe your major group affiliations, including race and ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation. Second, for each group affiliation determine whether it is an out-group minority identity such as black or Latino, female, or LGBT or an in-group majority identity such as white, male, or heterosexual. Third, reflect on your attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors toward yourself as a member of the identity group as well as toward people who share your group affiliation and people who do not. Be frank and honest with yourself. Consider what you really feel, think, and do, not what you believe you “should” feel, think, and do. Review the status descriptions in Table 9.1 for your out-group minority identities and in Table 9.2 for your in-group majority identities.

Part Three:

You will write a paper to describe and defend all of the exercises you completed, in addition to describing an action plan. To write the paper, you must use the template provided and leave the section headers (labels) the same as provided in the template. Part three will involve a total of 4-6 pages of narrative plus the action plan table. See below.

Note

a. Write a 2-3 page paper describing what you discovered by completing part one and part two of this project. Sections you must include in your paper are below:

a) Activities and Reflections: Describe each of the three activities you completed, what was discovered, and provide reflections about this. In addition, write about these questions. Also be sure to reflect about what your statuses mean to you and your profession.

b) Identity Statuses:

i. Which status best describes your dominant group identity status?

ii. Which statuses best describe your accessible group identity statuses?

iii. How do you know? What evidence do you have to support your self-characterization?

Instructions

b. Create an action plan using the template from Chapter 5 (Table 5.1: Journey of Self-Discovery: Action Plan). You may create an Action Plan table and put it in the paper you will turn in for this project. Make sure the table has the same columns and sections as Table 5.1. Be sure to put in more detail that the example in the chapter. Use the four columns provided in the template add at least five points under each column. See example below.

c. Provide a 2-3-page narrative that describes and justifies your action plan, how you will ensure the actions will be taken, and the value this will bring to you and those you serve in the future.
