Assignment 1 – 1 ½ pages

Please read over the scenario below and respond to the questions that follow.

Jay is in fourth grade and is frustrated because her classroom and cluster teachers play toddler songs during the day and read books about Sesame Street characters. Jay is in a small, specialized 12:1:1 (twelve students, one teacher, one paraprofessional/teacher’s assistant) classroom to support her need for structure, academic intervention, and one on one academic attention.  She is currently reading on a first-grade reading level. She likes to play Minecraft and is on the robotics team at school. Her favorite period is lunch and gym, where she gets to play in the playground with all of the other fourth grade students.  The special education support services staff (Occupational Therapy and Speech) have been taking her out of gym for special education supports.  Lately, she has been acting out whenever her teacher puts on the nursey rhyme songs or plays Sesame Street on the SmartBoard.  She started refusing to attend school and has become angry towards her parents, especially her younger sibling when she has to get ready for the bus.  The teacher wants to reevaluate her for a Behavior Intervention Plan.

What do you know about this student? What would you do if you were the special educator in the room?
