When studying concepts of literature, mathematics, science, and writing, some students need more support than others. The need for instructional scaffolding can be due to or irregardless of Special Education or Section 504 plans. Photocopied materials help students develop notes in the learning process while printed materials help students analyze their writing. Due to transference issues, the photocopying of teacher or peer work helps the student obtain the information needed to learn concepts and create an interactive notebook that a student can reference during independent practice. For student written work, the occasional printed word is impacting, especially when we can highlight structure and mark praise worthy sections. When students are given the tools they need to excel, it is amazing to see them grow. In the past, when we had a neighboring teacher who shared an interior door with, we could quickly and without interruption photocopy or print materials to support students on her personally funded system. Unfortunately, our new classroom does not have that interior doorway. This presents a safety and timeliness conflict. The printer and copier that teachers are to primarily use, which is funded by the district, is two locked doors and several hundred feet from our classroom. When a student needs a document, their need will have to be delayed until I can go to the printer room during lunch or the end of the day. With the potential for distance learning and staggering of student cohorts this coming school year, students may not come to school every day of the week or even a week, thus making the need to get materials into their hands all the more urgent.
