The vital abilities that each child must pick up are to understand necessary instructions. This is an important age that children are attempting to guess who they are. Educators will have to help the students if they need it because certain circumstances that students will rely on the teacher more than their own parents. I am certain that Ron’s conduct has a lot to do with the new surroundings. When a student is in new surroundings they will search and test the grounds on which they can and cannot do.
In this situation, it is important that the Teaching Assistant report their concerns to the classteacher. The teacher can then implement strategies or interventions to help the child improve. The teacher may already be aware that the child has difficulties and the report made by the Teaching Assistant will contribute to evidence gathered by the teacher. A concern such as difficulties with reading could have a knock-on effect on their other literacy skills such as writing. It may also highlight underlying difficulties such as dyslexia or learning difficulties.
Portsmouth Public School’s curriculum guide also includes a pacing guide to keep teachers on track. This is a useful guide for regular education teachers but as a special education teacher the pacing would have to be accommodated. Our students do not work and achieve on the same level as the “regular” education student. The writer will adapt the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL’s) to be used to teach a fourth grade class in spoken language, and first grade in word recognition.

It is the schools responsibility to be able to provide good enough teachers, who can prepare these students. In order to have a good education, there must be qualified teachers there to teach and prepare students effectively. Bauerlein questions schools curriculums and the way they are presenting “complex texts” (Bauerlein) to the students; “The more high school teachers place complex texts on the syllabus and concoct slow, deliberate reading exercises for students to complete, the more they will inculcate the habit” (Bauerlein). Students learn what their teachers tell them they have to learn, without knowing the effects the teachings will have on them whether good or bad. That is why schools providing qualified teachers are so important
I think that reading is where most students have trouble and this is where they slip through the cracks at school. Some teachers don’t want to deal with it so they just push the child through. I think that what really needs to be done is that teachers need to take the time to help these kids. They need to make sure they understand the work. They need to make sure the stuff is age appropriate for their reading ages; doing this will help a child to succeed at reading.

and Jones H. (2002) p249 write specifically about children who have English as an additional language. They state that: “Children who speak English as a second language may need more encouragement and support when undertaking writing activities. Assistants and teachers should be aware that they make lack confidence and need to have more time to think about the task” Pupil B: This child found it difficult to understand the rules of the game, thus needing lots of reinforcement and explanation in order to support him. In order to make ‘Pupil B’ feel part of the group I asked the whole group to participate in recalling the rules of the game and break down each step. I also suggested to the class teacher that in future activities there may be pictorial instructions to help and support children understand the rules of the game.
However, academically one of the “MID” students is reading at a kindergarten level. Therefore their IDEA eligibility determination documentation is based in part on their present levels of academic performance. Behavior characteristics are also weighed heavily in making an eligibility determination between Mild, Moderate and Severe. Typically, Down Syndrome children are very stubborn and determined to do things the way they perceive something should be. It requires a variety of teaching strategies to overcome undesirable behaviors in the classroom.
The article focuses on the role of literacy instruction for adolescents with reading disabilities. It mentions the challenges encountered by secondary teachers in motivating adolescents, who still struggle with basic literacy tasks, to stay focus on the learning process and the execution of elusive skills. It is critical to the importance of remedial reading instruction extended to secondary level considering minimal guidance from research on effective practices. It further states that emphasis on reading instruction at the early grades is evidently increasing at the secondary
