...want to cause a behavior or cause them to not complete the work. I will try different modification to help them succeed. When I am teaching the lesson I will break it down into smaller pieces, so they are not overwhelmed by the amount of information. For example, when we were studding about the planets I decided to have them learn about one at a time. We would compare two that we had already studied. If the student doesn’t want to write a summary, I will first try to have them type it. If I am still unsuccessful, I will see if they are willing to draw a picture, but we talk about the fact that the next time they need to write the summary like the rest of the class. In this lesson the student didn’t want to draw the planet, so I had him write the characteristics of the planet. It worked out well and the net time he was willing to do the assignment as assigned.

- Schools have been drastically changed because of student and teacher use on social media. Social media pages give the students and teachers a place they can both go and post information about their private life but still interact. The idea of students being able to quickly get help from one of their teachers when they are away from school through social media is a fantastic thing that could help many different people, but this idea did not have the effect that was intended. Many schools have banned teachers from friending their students and monitor what the teachers post to make sure everything is school appropriate.... [tags: Facebook, Social media, Twitter]

This is at the discretion of physicians in many states. However, social workers and mental health professionals must struggle with this legal situation if a client insists on potentially harming another person through risk of transmission of HIV”....
