During Unit 3, the class explored students with exceptional needs, such as students with learning disabilities who have an IEP. One of the most important parts of this unit was the field report, in which we had to describe and analyze teaching practices for students with an IEP. By having us adapt a content standard for the student we observed, we were able to address TPE 9, “Instructional Planning.” TPE 9 in particular deals with differentiated instruction, which is what we specifically observed and wrote
When first introducing to a lesson, a graphic organizer can be used to assess and organize a student’s knowledge on the lesson topic. An easy way to utilize a graphic organizer in this way is to have the students fill out a KWL chart. This organizes key information regarding what the student currently knows, what the student wants to know, and later on what the students have learned as a direct result of the lesson. This provides the instructor a learning history of what they can build upon and clues them in on areas of interest they can use later on in the lesson. During the lesson, students can utilize graphic organizers to identify, organize and assimilate key concepts and related details.
This assessment can ascertain as to whether the student has any background knowledge of the subject they are being taught and if they are applying for the correct level of education. Carrying out initial assessment can determine as to whether there are specific areas that a student needs to develop. ‘Diagnostic assessment is an evaluation of a learner’s skills, knowledge, strengths and areas for development. Formative assessments are ongoing throughout the course and a simple way of gauging how and what your students are learning. This then allows the teacher to amend the way in which they are teaching or what they are teaching to accommodate the results.
Leadership styles in particular can have a major influence on how individuals behave and how it effect decisions made in groups for example. Autocratic leadership . The effect of this is that it often creates for an unpleasant experience; group members give less effort into completing functions to the best possible outcome In addition the leadership style of Democratic leadership has been found to be the most effective, the influence it has is the leader reserve the right to make final decisions but encourage feedback, ideas, and suggestions from all members of the group usually leaving members feeling satisfied. And lastly is
They will need to plan how they are going to carry out the research and collect their results for use in Part 2 and Part 3. The research can be carried out during lessons or as a homework exercise. Candidates complete Part 1 under limited control. The work of individual candidates may be informed by working with others and work may be completed out of the classroom but candidates must provide an individual response. Teachers may give generic, informal feedback while the work is being completed but may not indicate what candidates need to do to improve their work.
EXPLAIN HOW PARTICIPATING IN THERAPEUTIC GROUP ACTIVITIES CAN BENEFIT AN INDIVIDUALS IDENTITY, SELF ESTEEM AND WELL BEING. Participating in group activities can benefit an individuals identity, self esteem and well being because it gives individuals a safe and comfortable place where they can share or work out problems.

Democratic leadership involves the leader encouraging the team members to become a part of the decision which is the opposite of Authoritarian leadership. Democratic leadership still means that the leader maintains control of the group of the final decision but the team still have the chance to voice their own opinions. This encourages a sense of responsibility in the team members. It also allows the leader to become better. This style would not be used in a situation where the team may be under fire, or in danger and have to act quickly, another style would be used then but I think this leadership style is most effective in situations that involve planning out things because both the team members and the team leader are involved in the decisions which make a bigger impact on the final decision in which all the team have put in input to make the action as effective as possible.

Two modifications have been made to accommodate diverse learners in each of the following areas: content, instructional strategies, the end product, and the environment. Differentiating Content The first modification to differentiate learning content is to have the articles available in a variety of media: an audio presentation, and a power point presentation in order to conveying key concepts to varied learners. Participants would be required to read, watch and/ or listen to the articles that a presented for demonstration. A few simple white board examples using a power point presentation of text and text-dependent questions will be presented during the class with the use of class participation to work through some real world examples. Teachers will develop text dependent questions to guide the students through the text in a small group setting.
