Artifact 1: For Artifact 1, under Tab F: Professional Learning and Practice, the Staff Development Project for ELAD 6423 Special Education Law, was completed. To complete the assignment, I created and conducted a staff development meeting concerning the disciplinary actions for special education students. To create the power point presentation, I used the information gathered in the Module 4 assignment which discussed the legal issues for behavior management of special needs students. To arrange the staff development meeting, I met with my building principal to discuss the subject of the meeting and a time that would be appropriate to present the presentation. I also met with our building special education teacher to discuss the content of the presentation and review any questions or concerns that might arise during the meeting. Once a time and date was set for the staff development meeting, I created and handed out the presentation flyer describing the date, time and subject for the staff meeting. Prior to the start of the presentation, I create a sign-in sheet for the faculty to sign for documentation of attendance. I also created a presentation agenda for the meeting, as well as, a participant handout that followed the power point presentation. During the meeting, I went into detail discussing the points of the presentation, which were the laws and discipline actions for students with IEPs. I feel that the teachers left the meeting with a better understanding of the discipline provisions in place for special needs students.

Artifact 3: I attended the Sonday System, a literacy program designed for beginning and struggling learners. I found the Sonday System workshop to be very interesting and beneficial, especially since I currently teach Kindergarten students. The program not only utilizes effective teaching strategies and interventions, but incorporates tactile components as well. I feel that my strength going into the workshop was my special education background knowledge, and understanding of interventions and strategies. However, since I attended the workshop during the early summer, I found it to be a weakness since I was not able to immediately implement the program.
