Reflection: Students with Disabilities Comparing Families to Understand More - Section 2: What Can We Infer and Conclude Discussion


Students with disabilities often can feel lost during a fast paced discussion. I like to have these students join me in a small group at the front of the room. During this time, we work on the same discussion topics the class is having, but I facilitate and lead more. This way they are more prepared when we come back as group. Most of the time these students will then participate more in the larger discussion because they have the confidence to do so. I also make sure to call on them first so that they are not overpowered or feel their thoughts are taken from another student.
