    Observation: As part of my research paper for three days I observed an inclusive classroom for two hours each day. During this time I was able to see how the general education teacher handles real life teaching situations in a classroom that has students with different abilities and six whom have IEP’s for numerous reasons such as emotional disorders.

    I would begin the professional development with different techniques that are used by veteran teachers in their classroom; for instance, proximity, seating charts, redirection, and classroom engagement techniques. These are all techniques that new teachers learn about in their education classes, but don’t use a lot when they are going through their classes and student teaching. I will present them once a month with a situation that arises in class and have veteran teachers discuss what they would do in that situation for the teachers and give the new teachers some helpful hints to add to those techniques that work for them. Then we will just use one technique to try that month in class and we will practice it over and over, and then let the new teachers apply those techniques in class. Then, when the next professional development occurs, I will give a question and answer worksheet that the teachers will answer on what happened in class, did they try the new classroom management technique, the situation that they used it in, and what results they got from its’ use.…

By keeping these notes I was able to track what each student in the class needs more help with in reading.…
