Challenges The main challenge across all programs in the BEA ALP comprises of learner involvement. Learner involvement takes in three dimensions in which an individual engages in our program. They include enrollment, attendance, and retention. 1. Enrollment: Overall there was a slight decrease in learner enrollment across all programs in the BEA this year. The Dartmouth North ALP (DNALP) had a slight increase in enrollment, whereas the Yarmouth ALP (YALP) remained the same compared to this time last year. On the other hand, the East Preston ALP experienced a modest decrease in enrollment in comparison to the same time last season. Enrollment is always a challenge from one year to the next. However, I believe the BEA-ALP could …show more content…
2. Attendance: Attendance is another major challenge for the BEA-ALP. There were only a few learners with an attendance rate of eighty percent or higher, and it is no surprise that these same learners are the ones who made the most progress. During the year, several learners have taken an “unexpected temporary leave” from the program. Durations for such leave can last for a few days and may last up to three weeks. Learners who take unexpected leave do so for various reasons such as; mental health issues, financial, family and relationship, substance dependency/withdrawal, low self-esteem and involvement in the justice system. ALPs are designed largely to provide reading, writing, and mathematics to adult learners; they are not equipped to address many of the social challenges that learners encounter daily. Incidentally, this role has fallen upon me, as the coordinator of the program. It can be exhausting, and at times over whelming to deal with the complexity of challenges faced by learners. I sometimes question myself for becoming involved in these situations, which can affect the time I have to perform other tasks. Some people suggest that I stick to the Coordinator’s job description. However, I feel that would be an enormous disservice to ANS, especially for the ones who have insufficient skills to deal with their situations. For example, a learner in the Dartmouth North Program pulled me aside to inform me that he was

Part A: The candidate with the approval of the school leadership will establish a professional learning community with a minimum of three peers to research areas of need in student learning and development in school.
During the 2011-2012 school year I began working in a new school in South Los Angeles. The neighborhood was rough riddled with gang violence and turf wars. To compound the stress of being in a new environment the speech therapist, Judeen, assigned as my supervisor was also new to the school site and had never worked at a school before. We were both overwhelmed with the amount of “catch up” work assigned to us. Services had not been provided for the 4 months prior to our arrival.
While working as an aide in multiple classrooms in the school age program at CCDD, my interest in a side of psychology that I had known little about before, quickly grew. The experience I had my first semester interning led me to accept a part-time position as an instructor’s assistant for the program for the rest of the year. Throughout the year, my position provided me with a greater understanding of the needs of diverse learners and the tools needed to ensure that all children
The main problem that I perceive from the Case of Leigh Scott is that both Dale and Aaron are doing the same work, with the same grades yet one has an explicit learning disability who receives lots of support and the other is not receiving enough support. Dale has a clear learning disability and thus receives not only support from Meg, the resource room teacher, who “helped Dale prepare for Leigh’s class” (Leigh Scott: Case Study, p. 29), he also receives support and encouragement from Leigh even though he does not do much work. Aaron on the other hand receives little to no support from Leigh even though he has constantly not come to class prepared, puts his head down during discussions and has done poorly on his assignments.
How much is the cost to join AAPC? To join as an individual you need to pay $110 and for a corporation to join they need to pay $950 annual feed due. AAPC examinations cost $300. and if in case you are already affiliated or enrolled in the AAPC accredited program, you are qualified for a discounted fee of $260. students that fail the exam the first time are normally allowed to do one free retake.
I spent the days leading up to the first day studying each student, reading case notes, and profiles to better understand identification number they were given. Ironically, five of my students were learning disabled and I knew exactly how they felt. I took my own learning experiences and developed lesson plans based around sports, music, and entertainment, creating an empowering curriculum relevant to their knowledge. The day quickly approached and before I knew it I was signed over the responsibility of over 80 students, each with a different personality, and each with different obstacles and barriers. Ironically, five of my students were learning disabled and I knew exactly how they felt. I took my own learning experiences and developed lesson plans based around sports, music, and entertainment, creating an empowering curriculum relevant to their
I could not get an accurate number of how many enrollments they were for this year, but through the facts I collected they’re about 13,123-15,294 enrollments of this fall, 2013.
Since its inception in 1991, ABTPA has provided 265 million dollars of state funding to 628 grants to supplement local law enforcement and public awareness efforts across the state. Subsequent to the creation of TxDMV in 2009, ABTPA has not received a significant increase in appropriations. FY 2011 was ABTPA’s first year completely as a TxDMV line-item under the General Appropriations Act (FY09-10 was still funded by TxDOT). The 81st Legislature appropriated $15,214,355 to ABTPA in FY2011, its largest appropriation as a member of TxDMV to date. Conversely, the appropriations made by the 83rd Legislature $14,907,341 and $14,904,340, for FY2014 and FY2015 respectively, are the lowest ABTPA has received as a part of TxDMV.
At the site base meeting it was noted that students are required to attend tutorials with Mr. Qualls after they have failed two consecutive six weeks. The teachers in attendance made various suggestions on how to be proactive to reach the students earlier in the semester to enable students to be successful the following six week. One common thread in the suggestions was to use 5th period as a pull-out program so teachers could work one on one with their student’s that need additional learning time in a particular subject that the student had failed the previous six weeks. Since students are currently assigned to a teacher’s attendance roster, an idea that was discussed by Mr. Bennett and Mrs. Hendrix, was to have teachers communicate with
Dong Ap Bia! “The Mountain of the Crouching Beast”. Beast, is exactly what the soldiers of the 3-187th, 101 Airborne (ABN) Division encountered on Hill 937, most commonly referred to as “Hamburger Hill”, in North Vietnam. A battle that lasted only10 days, cost 56 U.S. Soldiers their lives, 367 more wounded, and leaving all that survived asking themselves “Was it worth it?” Which was a scribed on a piece of cardboard stabbed into a blacked-out tree, (Time, 1969), after the hill was secured and occupied by U.S. troops.
During the air mission brief (AMB) COL Jones, the BCT commander, wanted to have another serial of aircraft land into the LZ, so he could have more Soldiers on the objective. COL Smith, the AATFC, was hesitant to COL Jones’ change request for the air assault. Why do you think the AATFC was hesitant?

If these students were placed in a regular classroom, they were often functionally excluded, when no support was provided for the child or the teacher. In addition, many students were misclassified following inaccurate assessment, placement or tracking. These past practices have been deemed in violation of a student’s constitutional rights. As a result, IDEA now requires that the educational program that is developed by the IEP team provide the child with opportunities in the least restrictive environment (LRE). LRE is the most normal setting that is possible for the student. The team should take several things into consideration when making this determination. First, they must compare the benefits in the regular class and the benefits in the special class. The U.S. Court of Appeals determined that the appropriateness of placement in the regular classroom is not dependent on the student’s ability to learn the same things the other students learn in the regular classroom. The benefit of social interaction should also be taken into account. Second, consideration should be given to the potentially beneficial or harmful effects that placement in the regular classroom may have on the students involved. Finally, cost should be considered when determining the appropriateness of student placement.
The modern classroom has many challenges that face it. Shrinking budgets, less parental involvement, higher expectations, and growing class sizes, just to name a few. If this list was not daunting enough you also have the special needs students that have an array problems in your classroom that need specialized attention, lessons and seating. There are many forms of diverse learners from students who suffer from ADHD to physical disabilities to students with autism to ones that are bullied in school. There are so many things going on in our students lives we sometimes forget they have lives, pressures and disabilities that affect their performance and attitude in our class that have a profound impact on how they learn.
