Hey I'm doing an assignment and I'm pretty confused about the question/statements (happy?). They seem like something you'd only know if you were in a classroom teaching. So maybe you guys can help me.

1. Understanding of how to access strategies to support learning for students whose first language is not English.

2. Understanding how to access resources/services to meet special learning needs.

My professor is terrible, so if you guys could help I'd really appreciate it.

You are confused because these aren't even questions. It's more of a statement.

If the question is, List ideas on how to support learning for students who'se first language is not English... Then that's a question. I can answer this questions. Or is it right and essay that displays understanding... Cause that's a whole bother beast.

Either wy, I have had classes on these subjects and could probably answer them if you need help, in class now though so later.

I think your teacher is trolling you.

What I listed is what were suppose to respond to, its an essay I'm writing.

This is how our answer is evaluated: The candidate demonstrated exceptional skill in understanding about when and how to access resources and services to meet special learning needs.

Not a question in the conversational sense, but rather in a homework setting insofar as it asks you to do something.

Some schools have certain people whos sole purpose is to help those with learning needs whether it is a disability or language issue. You do not want to seclude them from the other students and activities. Teach the class normally, perhaps giving special attention to those that require it, and make use of teaching aids if you have one placed in your classroom. Repitition and being surrounded by the language is the best way to learn it, but if a young child, it can become overwhelming. You need to be able to spot when a child has moved past the point of trying to understand the directions due to frustration. This will happen and you should let them take a breather for a few minutes. Of course, teaching yourself basics of the language will definitely help.

Those with special needs is definitely a grab bag depending on the child's situation. Is it seizures? Do they have down-syndrome? Were they sexually assaulted as a child and therefore must be watched around other students? Do your research before hand. Talk to your schools specialist if you have any questions and be sure to talk to the guardians. Structure tends to help nearly anyone with a special need. Be firm and don't be afraid to punish them if they do something they shouldn't do. It will be rough as depending on your class, you may have different students that play off of each others quirks. If you are able to separate them across the room or even send them to a different class to calm them down, do it. BUT, don't do it if they view it as a reward. Some students, once sent home due to bad behavior, will link that bad behavior to getting to leave school. Kids are terrible at hiding things, so once you realize this, stop sending them home.

rambling now.

Serious answer. Just add the words "Explain your..." or "Describe your..." to the beginning of each sentence. I think that is what your teacher is looking for.

There's actually a whole separate school near where I live that is all "special ed" students. I was shocked the first time I drove by it. My college on the other had has many disabled students working along side us "not-disabled" students.

I was just being difficult. Gotta go with your strengths!

Special ed students are more than capable of learning alongside other students, although much easier in elementary levels. Unfortunately, some teachers don't stive to challenge those with special needs as they view it as wasteful because "they wont get it anyway". But once you, as a teacher, understand they learn as an individual, not as a classification of disorder, you'll be amazed by how smart and unique their minds work.

No Prob.

Remember, to be a good teacher, you must also be a good student. Forget that, and you may end up like your teacher.

"once again i didn't write the assignment"

Is what you put in the OP the assignment, word for word? Because I have a feeling it is not.

You may also want to discuss IEPs and how they can affect how you're teaching various students, and how to access that information through your school district, etc..

I just like writing "insofar". It looks wrong but it's so very, very right.
