This is a Masters of Special Education course, and has two parts for this assignment. I have uploaded an overview of the module course work to be completed along with the four assigned readings. There will also be two presentation links provided to watch. I have also uploaded the “Reflection on Co-Teaching Concepts: The “Broken Arm” Case Study Assignment and Sharing Co-Teaching Tips” instructions as well. They are more detailed with the coursework assignment requirements and grading rubrics to follow. The four articles and case study “Instructional Accommodations and Co-Teaching: A Broken Arm” will be uploaded in PDF forms.
Part 1 – M5: Reflection on Co-Teaching Concepts: The “Broken Arm” Case Study
Read the following case study “Instructional Accommodations and Co-Teaching: A Broken Arm”; then, complete the questions below based on what you read:
1.) List what you learned about each of the characters in the case. What do you think is motivating the thoughts and actions of each of the characters?
2.) What are the issues and problems in the case? Discuss the common problems and issues faced in co-teaching. What steps are required to establish successful co-teaching relationships?
3.) When is it appropriate to make instructional accommodations? Modifications? Discuss techniques for modifying instructional methods and materials. What instructional accommodations and modifications in spelling did Mary make for Jim? Were they effective? Why or why not?
4.) Discuss the importance and benefits of communication and collaboration that promote interaction with students, parents, and school and community personnel.
– Make sure you read each question fully, because most of them have multiple parts
– Your reflection paper has no specified length; rather, you should focus on the completeness of your answers
Part 2 – M5: Sharing Co-Teaching Tips
In this assignment, you will contribute to a list of “Tips” for successful co-teaching.
– Contribute two tips for successful co-teaching to the class Google sheet by the assignment due date
– Tips need to be detailed so other people have a clear idea of how to implement the tips.
