Hello everyone. I want to address the lost Sp.Ed. student that has in some teachers classroom. Do we make them fill included or like an out cast? What are we doing do make them feel proud about themseles? I am very concerned that some educators are going back to old ways of sitting Sp.Ed. students in the back of the room or grouping all the students that are below level together so they stand out and not blend in. They are given color books and placed on the computer so they don't have to be a burden to them. Why is this occuring more often then anything now. One of our goals as teachers are to educate all students that are placed in our classroom no matter what level that student my be on. Why do some educators feel that it is just the job of the Sp.Ed. Teacher to give that student instruction and not the Gen. Ed. Teacher? Someone please help me understand this? Thank you,
