Week 8 Discussion 1 – Beyond the Scoreboard
Access and read the article below. Then consider the scenario that follows.
Beyond the Scoreboard
A sixth grade teacher in your school is having serious problems with classroom management. She had been a math lab teacher before she took this position. After three months of chaos, a chair has came flying out of the classroom and down the hall. You hear that report from the teacher who teaches next door. This teacher’s annual evaluation is still months away. However, due to student safety and the atmosphere in that classroom, you feel it is time for you to move in.
In light of the article, “Beyond the Scoreboard,” how will you begin conversations with this sixth grade teacher?
Will the tool your state uses to evaluate teachers be helpful for this conversation? If so, in what way will it be helpful? If not, how would you propose to change that tool to make it more helpful for this teacher?
How will you begin to document this teacher’s performance (crucial if litigation were to occur)?
Your initial responses are due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings.
Complete a 3 page essay following the attached instructions.
Week 7 Discussion – The Fourteenth Amendment and the Equal Protection Clause
After completing this week’s readings, consider the following scenario.
The teachers in the building where you are principal, are planning the annual Sixth Grade Graduation. The parents of a student in the Profoundly Mentally Impaired class have been told that their daughter will go to seventh grade next year. Her mother calls your office and asks if her daughter can be included in the graduation exercises. You assure her that the student may certainly participate.
When you present the idea to your teachers, they are very upset. You are told, “Her wheelchair will mess up graduation,” and “Her parents will bring her here, drop her off, and we will have to babysit her.”
In light of the Equal Protection Clause (see link below), what will be your response?
Should you provide an alternative to the graduation ceremony for this student because the teachers are not on board or should you just cancel the ceremony altogether?
The Fourteenth Amendment and the Equal Protection Clause
Your initial responses are due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings
Summary Paper – IDEIA
Access and review the PowerPoint file below – (see attached).
Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004
This PowerPoint presents the reauthorized law (IDEIA 2004) in terms that we can all understand. (Most of the documents about this law are very complex and detailed). The faculty members of the University of Virginia have thoroughly explained the law in this PowerPoint. Note that they mention Response To Intervention–some say Response to Instruction–early in their presentation. As we all know, RTI has modified the process for referring students for special education.
Submit a one- to two-page summary paper that summarizes IDEIA.
“Applying Research Skills”
· How has learning about educational research contributed to your own personal or professional goals?
· What skills have you learned in this class, and how will you use them beyond this class?
· What can you apply from this class in your current work environment?
