Week 1 – Discussion Forum

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

The grading rubric is based on 10 points, and the discussion is worth 3% of your grade.

Explaining it Clearly (Scenario) [WLOs: 2, 3] [CLOs: 1, 4]

Let me introduce you to Mr. Franklin. Imagine that you are walking into your very first classroom or learning environment as a trained special education professional. You will be working closely with Mr. Franklin, a general educator who has been in the education field for over ten years. In your “co-teaching” environment, both you and Mr. Franklin will be delivering instruction to the entire group of learners, which is comprised of 28 students. Seven of the students identified as having specialized academic or behavioral support needs. This type of classroom is considered an inclusive setting, where students of the same age are educated together with multiple types of differentiation of the instruction occurring based on the students’ individualized needs. In an inclusive environment such as this, there will be some students who are formally identified as students with exceptionalities, having specialized academic or behavioral needs.

Prepare

Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum,

Reflect

As you navigate this scenario, consider how you can apply these concepts and critical terms to your chosen path or learning environment in the field of special education. Points to ponder as you begin…

  • P-12: Consider the state or educational standards your district follows or the Common Core State Standards.
  • Early Childhood: The National Association for the Education of Young Children or your local education standards.
  • Post-secondary: Adult learning or training environments (e.g., educational, military, corporate environments, etc.) and standards aligning with professional learning.

Scenario

Before the instructional time officially begins, you meet with Mr. Franklin to discuss each of your roles within the co-teaching environment. It was discussed that Mr. Franklin will be expert of the instructional content and your role as the specialist will be to help students access the information at their own levels.

During this meeting, Mr. Franklin admits that he has never been partnered with someone who understands students with “special needs” or exceptionalities. He states he does not understand what is expected specific to the students with specialized learning needs. He asks you to explain some of the terms and acronyms he has heard before because he is not sure what they mean, including the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the individualized education program (IEP).

Take Action

Initial Post: Write and Post. After reading the scenario above introducing Mr. Franklin, your initial post should address the following:

  • Clearly define at least five terms specific to academic and legal concepts that apply when working with exceptional learners.
  • With each definition, provide an example that includes support from the readings and the Instructor Guidance from Week 1.
  • Define and explain each of these terms in a way that Mr. Franklin will understand along with providing authentic examples to support the definition you have provided.
  • State specifically how the terms may impact the practice of your co-teaching work with Mr. Franklin.
  • Discuss how these definitions impact your chosen path or learning environment in terms of the field of special education.

Guided Response

Respond to at least two colleagues or your instructor by Day 7 of this discussion. Discuss with your peers how their ideas and suggestions will assist with Mr. Franklin’s work and also your collaborative efforts in a co-teaching inclusive environment. How will understanding these terms and concepts ultimately help exceptional learners? You are encouraged to provide additional resources that will assist with your explanation.

Consider selecting someone different to respond to than you did last week. Distinguished responses will

  • Include a question about your colleague’s response.
  • Offer an additional resource that supports this week’s topics.
  • Discuss your colleague’s point of view.
  • Share your own related personal or professional experiences.
  • Support your statements and responses with scholarly resources.

Though two replies is the basic expectation, for deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you, including the instructor. Responding to the replies given to you will further the conversation and provide additional opportunities for you to demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real-world experiences with this topic.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
