The reality of teaching is that every new semester brings new challenges and rewards. Individualized Education Plans and 504 plans are part of most classroom environments and can pose challenges to instructional and assessment planning. Understanding your students will help you to better meet their needs.
At least annually, you will meet with the IEP team or support staff and parents to review these plans and share student progress. To prepare for these meetings, teachers often write a brief description of strategies, resources, and accommodations used in the classroom to support the student’s learning goals in order to improve achievement.
Examine the assessment data in the “Class Roster” and write a 100-150 word description for each student including strategies, possible resources, and accommodations to help improve student achievement. In addition, include a 100-150 word summary describing how you would interpret the assessment data for these students to inform and improve instruction.
Support your findings with a minimum of three scholarly resources.
