27. How will you coordinate/facilitate instruction to meet Adequate Yearly Progress goals?
I guess I'm stuck at what to answer is questions 8 and 9. I mean I know each part of the IEP, but in Ohio there is like 17 parts to it. How would you answer this? I also am interested to see how you would answer to question 10.
Thanks a lot!
I have worked in special education before, but I do not pretend to be an expert.
For question #9, the components should be similar no matter what the state because they follow federal guidelines for IDEA. The main components are the student's background information (name, address, age, people who have an involvement in child's education), the student's current level of functional performance and academic achievement (current medical and educational diagnosis, strengths, weaknesses, the parent's concerns, educator's concerns), the student's academic/behavioral goals and benchmarks (listing the conditions, behaviors, and criterion), the student's listing of provided services (regular and related services with minutes per day/week/month),and the modifications needed for the student to receive a FAPE (bus transportation, assistive technology, modified assignments, test accommodations).
For question #27, I would make myself an expert in the district curriculum and GLE's and do everything I can to align the curriculum with the student's present level of achievement and academic goals. I will consistently and frequently take assessment data on my student's progress in order to facilitate instruction that maximizes my student's learning potential.
Hope this helps. Although I have collected data in the reevaluation process, I do not know of all the components. Question #10 is kind of personal, but I believe efficiency is key. There are many different ways of collecting data, but whatever you use, it must be clearly organized. Think about how you would collect data. Would you use special charts on hard copies? Would you solely use a laptop? How would you stay organized?
