The first educator that I observed was Mrs. Crystal Sullivan at Fox Meadow Elementary on September 14, 2017. Mrs. Sullivan is a music teacher at this school and on this particular day, Mrs. Sullivan had special needs students in her classroom in the early morning. I chose to observe Mrs. Sullivan while teaching special needs because I had a great interest in special needs students. The students came into the classroom and first went to sit on the risers in the back of the room. Accompanying them were 4 other adults who assisted the special education teacher. Mrs. Sullivan began her class with the “Hello” song which the students were receptive to. She played a small guitar while singing the song and they also began to pat the beat on their legs. The disabilities of the students ranged from severe to non-severe. There was one student who did not seem to enjoy the music because he continued to cover his ears. The teachers accommodated him by encouraging him to listen and participate. Mrs. Sullivan used many engaging techniques such as physical activity while teaching her music class with the special needs students. For example, Mrs. Sullivan played the “All Fall Down” song on the smart board and each student performed a move at various times in the song. The students would either act like they were cranking up or they would crank down and fall to the carpet. She also utilized the parachute which students held and walked around as music played. Mrs. Sullivan also used dynamics

The fourth task I instructed the child to put on his coat and zip it up. The child struggled at first but was successful at zipping his coat up alone. The fifth task I had to ask the mother if her child uses the toilet by himself. The mother responded, “He can use the restroom by himself when he knows he has to go”. The final task I asked the mother is her child share toys with others. The mother responded, “He share toys that he does not like”. The mother also reported that her child does hear well.

Type II SLAP LESIONS Alia Scriven Coppin State University KNES 427- Therapeutic Athletic Exercise September 30, 2016 Introduction Russell Carrington is a 25 year old right handed relief pitcher for the MLB team the Baltimore Orioles. Carrington has been playing baseball since he was seven years old and this was his third season in the Major Leagues. Carrington was at the mound and in the motion of throwing a fastball, when he felt a “pop” in his overhand motion. He dropped to his knees and clinched his right shoulder in pain. Athletic trainers came onto the field an upon examination Carrington stated his arm felt like it was “dead” and felt like it was “catching”. Carrington was seen by the team physician. She performed ROM exercises, strength, and stability tests on his shoulder and examined his neck and head to ensure pain wasn’t coming from a pinched nerve. She concluded that further testing and imaging was necessary. Carrington had an X-ray and MRI done on his shoulder and he was diagnosed with a type II SLAP (Superior Labrum Anterior and Posterior) lesion. He didn’t want surgery done because he would miss the remainder of the season and possibly the next, so doctors prescribed non-steroid anti-inflammatory medication and five months physical therapy to strengthen the shoulder capsule. After completion of physical therapy, the pain didn’t improve and arthroscopy surgery was recommended.

1. My participant observation research project is on sex offenders. A few topics I would be interested in is different type of offenders, such as pedophilic and non-pedophilic. I know sex offending is horrible all together but I really hate when I hear about children and teens being hurt. My questions would be what causes their urge to offend children? How do they know the victim? How to help the offender?
