Mrs. Scott understands that the parents of her students should be her partners for the school year and she feels that if she constantly “bothers” them for small things when she needs them for big things they won’t want to support her. For each subject, Mrs. Scott most uses one-way communication she emails and for two way communication she uses the Friday folders and the student planners. In Math, she uses primarily one-way communication she uses email when she knows students are struggling. Also though she uses two- way communication because if the students are really struggling she will have the student and the parents come in before or after school to talk about how they can ... ... middle of paper ... ... they don’t want to feel like they are bothering their parents or bombarding them if questions or requests.

After learning he had ADHD and reading a little about the symptoms in the book, his behavior that day made so much sense to me. His behavior was still stressful for me, because I didn’t know how to handle it, but at least I know why it was happening. Something that was a bit newer to me, too, was seeing the science test read aloud to the students.

Teachers must understand that stress, such as timed or impromptu tests will likely to worsen a student’s writing performance.
