When it comes to the assessment of learner’s achievements, the teacher’s main role is to monitor and assess pupil achievement. They will need to find out how pupils are progressing and be able to report back to parents and staff. Assessments are an ongoing process and can take different forms. Teachers plan lessons with clear objectives so that learner progress can be measured. The role of the learning support practitioner is to support the class teacher in this process. This may include giving the teacher feedback for an activity or even assessing pupils. What a learning support practitioner will not be expected to do is report back to parents and staff, which is the teacher's responsibility.
As a teacher/trainer, there are certain roles and responsibilities that you have when it comes to the needs of learners. Teachers/trainers should look to the teaching and learning cycle as this contains an outline
Practitioners will continue to observe, plan and review for their key children, they will record all targets for individual children to help them progress in their development. There are ways to approach additional support such as:
Practitioner’s expectations should be to become a valuable practitioner, to be reliable and build good relationships with children and parent carers, encouraging play whilst learning, and by having children’s best interests e.g. physical activities, outings, this would help them to enjoy their growth in knowledge and assist in enhancing their development as a whole. Also practitioners should work as a team with other staff members and parent/carers in order to support the children to promote the children’s initial learning so that the children will feel confident and would be able boost up their self-esteem, and this will also help them in their future, and prepare them in further education when they move onto school. Also the
A practitioner’s role in meeting children’s learning needs are to understand and work with each and every child’s learning needs. They can do this by providing different opportunities to individual children because each child is unique and learns differently. The practitioners’ role would therefore be to plan and resource an environment that is challenging and helps children learn in many different areas of their learning.
[The learning goal states that the focus learner will be able to formulate learning that all circles are similar through application of transformation techniques (translation and dilation), by the end of the learning segment. The IEP goal states requires the focus learner to describe relationships between similar geometric shapes with 70% accuracy on informal assessments, utilizing one to two supports, by the ending of May 2016. In each lesson the objectives systematically build upon each other as they support the focus learner in accomplishing the learning goal that is based on the focus learner’s IEP goal. The lesson goal and the IEP goal both relate to learning of geometric shapes, with the learning goal being more specific, the circle. After selecting the circle a Common

Of concern to me is also monitoring of my students. I need them to actively involved in monitoring their progress and finding out from them where they most need help. I want them to take an active part in the learning process and I cannot do it alone. If I can get them to be invested in the learning process they might be able to help me to be a better teacher, who plans her lessons so that they are structured to meet students’ need and take them to the next
In the American system the curriculum serves 5, 000 students and more than 20 countries and we need to review and look at the IEP process. The question that has spark concerns is to look at students direct IEP and how we can look to evaluate it? How students benefits from an IEP and what would be the first logical steps to change the process. We have a mixture of students who are not all English speaking students from all backgrounds and have some disabilities. I’m not here to complain about the teachers in your system, you have wonderful teachers who capture student’s interest and encourage students learning. But we are here to address the IEP’s process issue.
The IEP team met today to conduct an annual review for Daniella Rayon. Two separate notifications were sent out to the parent/ student. SB 1108 was addressed and signed at the start of the meeting. The parent and student were both present.
You need to know and understand: K1 the relationship between your own role and the role of the teacher within the learning environment your role and responsibilities for supporting pupils’ learning and the implications of this for the sort of support you can provide the school policies for inclusion and equality of opportunity, and the implication of these for how you work with pupils your experience and expertise in relation to supporting learning activities and how this relates to the planned activities the objectives of the learning activities to be supported the importance of planning and evaluation of learning activities the basic principles underlying child development and learning; the factors that promote effective learning; and the barriers to effective learning K8 K9 strategies to use for supporting pupils’ learning as individuals and in groups school policy on the use of praise, assistance, rewards and sanctions
The webinar I watched was Introduction to Individualized Education Programs (IEP). This webinar was designed to provide parents with information regarding the IEP. It first began by listing the disabilities that were considered eligible for services in the state of Nevada. Then the webinar discussed the different laws that govern and shape special education today, such as the 14th Amendment, the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC). The webinar also described the evaluation process, and how the evaluation results are the cornerstone of the IEP. Next the webinar discussed when the IEP should be in place, and how transitioning records from one school to the next takes place. The parent, the special
Special education teachers are trained to work with children who have a wide range of disabilities. One of the primary responsibilities of a special education teacher is to assess her students' cognitive abilities, and modifies the standard age-appropriate curriculum to create a custom plan for the student. This plan is called an individual education program(IEP). An IEP often includes a number of social and emotional development goals as well as specific academic areas to be taught. The special education teacher’s core task is to meet each of the goals established in the students’ IEPs. In some cases, the special education teacher is located in a separate classroom. When this is the case the teacher will creates lessons geared to meet the objectives of the students’ IEPs. In many instances, special education students are placed in regular classrooms. In that situation, the special education teacher attends classes with her students. She often will work with students on life skills and behavior modification techniques as well. Skills that special educational teachers should possess include, better than average stress management, great multi-tasking abilities, quick thinking, and creative problem solving. A special education teacher must be able to think outside the box and develop an array of teaching methods and techniques to meet the needs of each individual student. Special education requires a vast amount of detailed record keeping, so it is essential for these teachers
Having a degree in an education, my first goal would be to meet with the State Department of Education, but on a more personal level, school districts to discuss how they accommodate those with a LD. I would like to talk with those who oversee the individuals IEP (Individual Education Plan), to ensure that all student’s needs are being met by teachers, but most importantly that IEP’s are taking place on a regular basis, with adjustments being made as needed. Based on family experiences, I would also look to ensure that all high sophomores with a LD are aware of the accommodations they have they can apply for, when looking into the SAT/ACT, along with the deadlines, while also having a form of open communication with administration.
This year our administration is allocating times during staff meetings and inservice days to work on teacher-led focus groups. Educators were encouraged to submit initiatives or ideas that they felt would be valuable in improving our school. I submitted a proposal for a focus group that would be responsible for determining a plan of action and curriculum for creating student-led IEP meetings. We also agreed that we would create a timeline that would specify what most students would be expected to be able to do at each grade level. My focus group was approved and has met six times throughout the first semester. Our team consists of our transition specialist and intervention specialists from all grade levels and a variety of disability ranges (mild to moderate, moderate to intense, emotional disturbances, and autism). As a group, we first created a vision for what we wanted the outcome of our project to be. We decided having students both write and lead their IEP meeting by their senior year would be the ultimate goal. By the next meeting, we agreed to find research that would suggest strategies for increasing student involvement as well as interview colleagues at local area schools to determine their experiences and school practices. When we reconvened, we created a timeline which specified which component of the IEP the student would write and present at his/her meeting in each grade level (see Appendix A). Our team wanted to gradually increase students’ responsibility but
