Strategies for all Students

Part 1: Developing Strategies

For each student, write a 150-200-word response that includes:

· A learning theory that applies specifically to each student’s unique cognitive, linguistic, social-emotional, and physical developmental needs.

· One developmentally appropriate instruction strategy you would recommend to assist the student, taking into account the students’ individual strengths, interests, differences and needs. Consider cognitive development and abilities, as well as contextual factors (e.g., language and culture) when developing the strategies.

· Your plan to modify instruction to meet this student’s specific needs.

· Strategies to incorporate accommodations for students with exceptionalities in assessments and testing conditions.

Scenario 1

Mrs. Merrell, a second-grade teacher, is teaching a lesson about using information gained from illustrations and words to demonstrate understanding of a story’s characters, setting, or plot.

Her parents are Spanish-speaking but are not literate in the language. Randi is below grade level in reading and is in the lowest of Mrs. Merrell’s reading intervention groups.

How will you continue to support Randi during this reading lesson? -think about, do not answer-
