Attending A Middle School Classroom

- during my observations I was able to attend a middle school classroom and in this middle school classroom I was unable to talk to the teacher about students who had an IEP, ISP, or section 504.

She would walk them through it, discussing want each bubble should have and eventually let them do it on their own. As an individual I think this worked really well because most of the students were able to get on task as soon as they were left alone and other would not....   [tags: Education, Teacher, School, Middle school]
