Meta-reflection: Standard 8: Exceptionality

Grading…a challenge for every teacher. An extra challenge -grading children with an IEP; different learning goals than the general education student. What can we do to grade appropriately? Well, this PowerPoint will answer some questions and give some good ideas. It is important, however, to remember that grading processes are often to measure a child’s progress in comparison to the norm. Including an additional progress report with a quarterly report card, that highlights their progress in correspondence with their IEP, would be beneficial to all parties involved in the child’s education. The artifact below satisfies standard 8: Exceptionality: Addresses the unique learning and behavioral needs of all children, collaborating with other educators and professionals where necessary.

Another artifact that satisfies standard 8 is the following presentation on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Two of my colleagues and I created this power point presentation to better understand and aid our fellow educators’ understandings in how children learn language, to investigate the positive and negative impacts of second-language learning and to better serve students with language disorders. This artifact also satisfies standard 8: Exceptionality.

Below is a direct link to all artifacts and discussions that I feel have implications regarding exceptionality.
