Artifact 1: For Artifact 1, under Tab G: Collaboration, the Power Point Assignment, Barriers to Collaboration, from ELSE 5083 Collaboration for Special Education was completed. Students were asked to develop a PowerPoint presentation for the course. The topic was to focus on the collaborative practices for special education service delivery in the participant’s school district and community. The presentation was to focus specifically on the barriers that make collaboration challenging for educators, especially for special education professionals. Additionally, candidates were to include how educators collaborated with parents, how paraprofessionals were utilized within the learning environment, and how the special education process was followed within the learning environment.

The lesson plans were to use appropriate approaches for co-teaching and clearly describe each approach. The lesson plans were to also provide a detailed description of appropriate modifications and adaptations for students with special needs.

...iscussing the questions. One of the parents that I interview told me that she had been approached before to complete an interview, but she didn’t feel comfortable discussing such personal feelings with others. However, she told me that since I was also a parent of a special needs child, and could relate to the questions, she felt much more comfortable completing the interview. I believe completing the interviews should definitely impact how educators interact with students. But, how often do educators ask the “real” questions that are in the interview? Personally, I have never had an educator ask me questions about our family dynamics or fears. I believe if more educators consider the emotional aspects of raising a special needs child, more positive relationships and mutual understanding would form between the families and educational professionals.

- Intro: Paragraph 1 Religion: Electronic media most negatively affects religion and education. Electronic media has drastically changed how we view and practice religion. By televising religion, we will start to view religion as something profane rather than something special and sacred to our lives. Postman begins his argument by stating, “Everything that makes religion an historic, profound, and sacred human activity is stripped away; there is no ritual, no dogma, no tradition, no theology, and above all no sense of spiritual transcendence....

- I co teach Second Chance Reading to a group of general and special education junior high students. The students are placed in the class because they are non-proficient readers who need additional vocabulary and reading comprehension instruction.

All of a sudden, there is an ear-splitting screech from the back of the classroom and a book goes hurling towards the chalkboard. One’s first instinct would be to whip around and see what the commotion was about; however, it is just Toby, the special needs child. This class encounters outbursts like this from Toby nearly everyday. The mainstreaming of special education students is the main reason behind these disruptions.... [tags: Special Education ]

- Today, students are separated into many categories, one of which is special education; the students under this label are likely to model “atypical” behavior rather than “typical” behavior. Defining and distinguishing these behaviors is what creates the special education process; evaluating and viewing each student individually and taking into consideration the individuals strengths and weaknesses. Special education is a broad term used to describe many children on a spectrum. The general term “special” can be used to include children from the gifted program that test above that of their normal grade level, to students suffering from impairments such as being deaf or blind, to students with l...
