Student participates in all assessments, however, an aid is present to read the questions and give further explanation. More time is also given on the assessments if need be. Using a child development framework, identify the typical characteristics of a comparable normal student. How does this student compare to the norm? Discuss what areas of development seem to be different.


Norm (identify source) Use tantrums, teasing, bossing, complaining, and tattling to try out relationships with authority; learn best when adults understand but do not excessively tolerate this behavior Extremely sensitivean ounce of encouragement may be all they need to get through a difficult situation; severe criticism can truly injure them Highly competitive, can overdo the need to win and be first; do better when teachers take the competitive edge off games used for learning Ready to try taking on individual and group responsibilities.

Strengths/Needs (IEP/observation and/or discuss with CT)

What are at least 2 individual characteristics from the social, emotional, behavioral or academic areas that you need to consider in meeting this students needs? What information/evidence do you have that leads you to believe that these areas need to be taken into consideration in the design/implementation of the lesson? (Diagnosis) Working on sounding out the word, making sure to get that first sound write. Use the phonics we work on together in class along with the movements to help. Allow them to work fast, and when they are done they go to the check-out line and have a conference with me. We talk about the strengths and something we can work on. If they need to work on something, have them work on one more things and then bring it back. Talk together to form ideas that way when he is on his own he isnt as stuck and has ideas to work with to get him started. What evidence (pre-assessment) do you have that the child needs to meet the lesson objective? (Diagnosis) The student needs to be given the directions multiple times. Examples need to be written and then up for the student to see while practicing on his own. Student needs one on one time at least once during practice time to make sure he is on task or has any question. In this case, the student needs to draw pictures to get his ideas across and then he can begin writing.

What strategies/principles have you learned that could assist you in being more effective in meeting his/her needs in this lesson? (Conceptualization, Coordination) Student uses a pencil with a different grip which has helped his writing to be more legible. Give examples and let him pair-share with a partner to gain ideas. Model what needs to be done and have that as a scaffold for the student. How will you monitor student learning during the learning segment? (Diagnosis, Integrative Interaction) If one of your strategies is to ask questions to monitor the learning, write out possible questions ahead of time. Be sure that the strategies will provide you just-in-time feedback as to how the child is progressing towards meeting the lessons objective(s). Once the student is done writing, we will have a check-in spot where the students will conference with me for a minute or two. This is where I have them explain what they have done and we talk about what is good and what can be even better for next time. This allows the students to take ownership of what they are doing and provides them with something to think about for next time. He really enjoys the check-in too to socialize one-on-one with me. Identify the evaluation criteria that you will use to assess student learning. Look at the objectives and see if he meets them. I am also looking to make sure that he is sounding out the whole word, but really want to focus on him getting the first letter in the word correct. Address the strengths of the student, being sure to include their strongest learning modality (MI) Enjoys socializing with adults and, for the most part, with his peers, so making sure that you include time for him to discuss thoughts and ideas with a partner. Enjoys drawing, so allowing him to use pictures in his writing.
