This is my 10th year as a reading intervention teacher for exceptional needs students who need specific learning supports, it has always been great! All proceeds of this fundraiser will go to helping build a community library in a depressed area in the Philippines.
As a current Inclusion Specialist and Reading Intervention teacher, I adapt my teaching strategies based on the needs of individual students that I work with. Allowing each student to feel successful at the various tasks they attempt is the key to motivating every child in my classroom to learn. By providing a variety of ways (modifying, scaffolding, etc) for them to successfully accomplish the tasks at hand, I motivate them and allow them to express what they have learned, thereby letting me know what they know.
