My Students

My classroom is unique because all students have Individualized Education Programs (IEP's) and are at different levels academically, socially, and emotionally. They all have different learning needs which makes it a diverse and dynamic classroom environment. In one area of the room you may find students listening to a book on audio, while in another area a group will be engaged in a lesson at their instructional level in reading, writing, or math with the teacher, and in another students will be working independently on tasks at their individual level.

Another aspect that makes this room unique is that the school is located in a low socio-economic area of the city.

Although the students have hardships due to poverty and their disabilities they continue to have positive attitudes, work hard, and strive for success on a daily basis.

My Project

A computer in the classroom will give students access to knowledge through programs such as Raz Kids, Mobymax, and Google Classroom. These programs are especially useful for students with disabilities because of the audio/visual components. Programs like Raz Kids give students the opportunity to listen to books at their specific ability level with accompanying colorful illustrations and photographs. After listening to the book, they then read it on their own and answer questions that test their understanding of what they just listened to and read. There is also a component with this technology where students can read aloud then text while the program records them reading. This allows the teacher to go back and listen to their reading and assess. With this computer, students will be able to have another modality to access knowledge.
