The High School Special Education Classroom is a classroom for students with physical and/or mental disabilities. The class is ideal for students who do not feel as though they are learning in a traditional classroom, and need the extra attention that this special education classroom can provide.
Students with physical or mental disabilities will be put in an environment where they will be able to learn at their own pace, without worrying about other students moving too quickly or too slowly for them.
The High School Special Education Classroom is located in the Special Education Wing of the school building. It contains several tables and a large bookcase, as well as a desk for the teacher and a whiteboard. The room has two doors, one of which leads outside, and two windows. The walls are painted a cheery yellow color, making it a fun space for students to learn.
The Special Education Teacher is responsible for providing quality educational experiences through implementing and managing Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) for a group of students in a specialized classroom. This position also collaborates with other staff members on a variety of educational issues.
The role of our classroom teachers is to facilitate a supportive learning environment where students can learn and grow in an atmosphere that provides them with accommodations and modifications that are specific to their individual needs. They create instructional environments that allow for choice, autonomy, and collaboration as we strive towards becoming more independent learners who are able to advocate for ourselves as we go out into the world as young adults.
The classroom is set up rather differently than mainstream classrooms, with chairs arranged in clusters, so students can sit with a partner or small group. There are also tables set up on either side of the room for students who prefer to work alone. There is a wide variety of seating options, including cushions, bean bags, and rocking chairs.
These rules may seem strict, but they are in place to help you learn and keep you safe! This is because many of us have trouble understanding the rules and following them, even when we know that it’s for our own good.
The high school special education classroom is a place of learning and growth for students with varying levels of needs. Students in this classroom are usually classified as having specific learning disabilities, and may be on an individualized education plan (IEP).
Cooperative learning is an instructional strategy that encourages students to work together in small groups on an activity. The goal is for students to build their social skills and develop academically.
The teacher selects an appropriate cooperative learning strategy and makes sure to model the skill, teach the strategy, and allow for guided practice before releasing students to complete a task on their own.
It’s also important for the teacher to make sure that every student in the group has a role, and that there is an explicit purpose for working together. Students should receive immediate feedback about how well they are performing their role in the group, and what they can do to improve.
