Give real help

  1. 1. Give Real Help Rebecca Bookman [email_address] April 23, 2010 EEX 4070
  2. 2. Early Perceptions <ul><li>I was nervous going into this project, because working with students that have learning disabilities can be intimidating, and I have never been in an environment that had children with major learning disabilities. </li></ul><ul><li>I had never worked with a child that had autism before and did not know how I should act or how I should treat that child when I first met her. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Like in the “Understanding Differences” module it even says, “Treat persons and talk to them the same way you would others of their age, even if they have cognitive differences!” </li></ul>
  4. 4. Introduction to the Setting
  5. 5. Demographics
  6. 6. Personal Demographics <ul><li>I am a full time student in the College of Education at UCF </li></ul><ul><li>I work at Disney World as a Trainer that I feel has helped me become a better teacher for all ages </li></ul><ul><li>I spend a lot of time with friends and family </li></ul><ul><li>I enjoy reading and going to school functions </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>I met with one student that had autism, not sever but caused learning disabilities that affected their comprehension and attention span. </li></ul><ul><li>I met with that student on Fridays. </li></ul>Engagement Activities
  8. 8. <ul><li>I worked with that student to help them on their homework, or any class work they struggled with. </li></ul><ul><li>If they did fall behind on their school work during the time I was there I would on improving their skill building using activities such as phonics games, etc. </li></ul>
  9. 9. How Get Real Help Started.. <ul><li>I am a member of the Real Life Christian Church and love to volunteer when I can. </li></ul><ul><li>They were more than happy to work with our Service Learning Group in getting into the classroom to gain experience with more challenging students. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>The goal of our project was to go into the classrooms and provide one-on-one time to students who needed it. </li></ul><ul><li>Although the children we worked with were not severely disabled by any means, as we have learned in the EEX 4070 course students with LD, or ADD are going to be apart of our future classrooms and experience with them is needed as well. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Participant Demographics <ul><li>Each member of our group worked with different teachers and different grade levels.. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>First Grade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Shirley (Heather & Sara) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Cornett (Allison Carroll) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><ul><li>Second Grade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Mills (Allison Love) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><ul><li>Fourth Grade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Stevens (Tiffany & Rebecca) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>(Rebecca) </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><ul><li>Fifth Grade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Perkins (Wendy) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ms. Dove (Sara) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Reflection of your Experience <ul><li>While I worked with my student I felt frustrated at times when they had so much trouble just focusing that I had to back away and say okay lets go and take a walk to remove her from the situation and then come back to revisit the activity again. </li></ul><ul><li>Just doing that I found it to be very tiring because I had to give so much to the one child that I could not even learn from the teacher at any moment. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>I just realized that how can a single teacher try to deal with a student that has any type or learning disability that requires their main attention in the classroom and be responsible to teach all the other students at the same time. </li></ul><ul><li>This project really opened my eyes to how each child is truly different and I have grown from this assignment because I am closer to becoming ready to step into the shoes of a teacher with children with learning disabilities. </li></ul>
