Hello all! I know you're all a very helpful bunch, and I hope you could grant me some. I'm a substitute and I'll be spending the next week (maybe two, depending on how things go) in a middle school VE class. Here's everything I know: the teacher has lesson plans for me ready, the students aren't isloated (there's new kids every hour), and there's no "behavior" kids. I know VE means "varying exceptionalities", and these kids are also SLD, "specific learning disabled". Can anyone give me some examples of what that exactly means? Has anyone worked in a similar setting? I'm kind of intimiated, because of a horrible experience I had in a behavior unit with 9th graders. I know they're not like that, but I'm not totally confident in my ESE skills. Any advice?
