KSA #1: CONTEXTUAL VARIABLES
"The teacher's application of pedagogical knowledge, skills and attributes is based in their ongoing analysis of contextual variables."
I strive to know how to analyze and respond to student, parent, teacher, and societal variables by making reasoned decisions about teaching and student learning.
EXCEPTIONALITY WEBSITE & PRESENTATION
(Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder)
The button above leads to a website about FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder) students. This resource was created by my peers and I in the course ED3602 (Psychology and Education of Exceptional Learners) to describe implications in the classroom, offer teaching resources, and honor diversity. Such information helps to respond appropriately to contextual variables and foster a positive learning environment for students with exceptionalities.
ACCOMMODATING INDIVIDUAL NEEDS
The document above discusses the IPP (Individualized Program Planning) process, benefits, and challenges in elementary and junior/senior high levels. This assignment for ED3602 shed good insight on the wide range of contextual variables surrounding students and was especially valuable throughout my practicum as I was able to respond to individual needs accordingly.
