Decent Essays
Shores & Bender (2007) defines it “a process of implementing high-quality, scientifically validated instruction practices based on learner needs, monitoring student progress, and adjust-ing instruction based on the student’s re-sponse.” Response to Intervention measures the responses of students learning and to also identify if the student’s have a learning disabil-ity when they do not respond well to high qual-ity instruction. RTI serves a purpose to provide student’s an intense instruction that will benefit and support their educational needs. Teachers also can monitor and frequently assess student progress at a constant level.

It is just by comparing the basis of IQ score on child’s achievement or cognition resulting in the child having a disability or not. I do believe this can actually take away student’s chance to prove themselves in their ability to do better. Many factors of student learning are different from their peers. Perhaps students who are in differ-ent cultural background require different in-struction. Teachers need to be sensitive to stu-dent’s different way of learning things. Ac-cording to Dr. Tom’s video a child can receive special education if they are two years behind and is qualified as learning disabled, mean-while he/she was struggling each year. It is not the fault of the child, rather how he/she was not given an opportunity to obtain a high- quality instruction from the teacher. I begin to wonder after arriving to America at age 2. I only spoke Persian until I went to school at age six. Being a child who spoke another language I struggled in general education class. Automatically I found myself in special education in another school setting with all special need students. I was actually a visual learner and very introverted and teachers failed to give me proper instruction. Struggling and labeled as a student who was learning disabled, caused my views in school to negatively impact my ability to do well. Once I was sent to General Education class, I felt I was not good enough while all other students were praised for doing really well. I was considered an outcast from teachers who understood my disability and disliked me. I felt their frustrations when they became tired of teaching me instruction that I could not un-derstand. I was always sent to speech classes and resource rooms and still not learning. My lack of confidence and interest in school be-came the primary focus in not doing well in

    I started to talk back to the teacher, not express interest in school topics, and essentially gave up on achieving educational bliss. My teacher at the time told me over and over again that with this behavior i 'll never achieve anything, that I would be worthless. I was separated from the students in the classroom put in my own desk in the back of the room. I was considered a threat to others learning, mainly because I was so disruptive, but part of me thought that maybe the teacher thought I was down the wrong path so much that I created a whirlpool around me that brought people down the path with…

    Throughout first and second grade I excelled academically, but my social skills were not improving. I had no interest in playing with the kids, they bored me. I didn’t want to play with toys or jump ropes so I sought attention from my teachers constantly. In second grade I was diagnosed with ADD and ADHD and my parents were always coming to school because I was being disruptive. Not because I was mean to other kids or not doing my work, but because I was always fidgeting or humming.…

    As far back as I can remember, I recall mixing up certain letters in the alphabet. I had difficulty with sounds, which made it really hard for me to write with accuracy. With extra help from the “Learning Lab” in elementary school I was able to just barely get by but I always found myself behind everyone my own age. My memories from being in the Learning Lab were really traumatizing at the time. I was always singled out, and pulled from the class to get extra attention that I did not appreciate at the time.…

    The argument of “why can’t they ask the teacher during class for help?”. Many students are afraid to ask a question because they think it’s a stupid question, and that the other students will make fun of them. Chances are the parents won’t remember the material on the homework because they have been out of school for so long, which adds to the stress they already have from work and whatever else they do during the day. This can also lead to bad grades or wrong teaching by parents if they don’t know the homework. “Maybe students are right to complain about too much homework.…

    fails to pass a standardized test or regents exam. Further, it is not fair, for teachers to be criticized based on how well their students perform in their state exams. In addition, it is also not fair for principals to use test scores to judge teachers how effective and ineffective they are? Ever since, the nation has industrialized, we have forgotten how strenuous teaching is and often times, they are not always observed fairly and their accomplishments are also not always acknowledged. Teacher’s role often changes from teaching to counseling, because some students are in the poverty borderline, according to a Washington D.C post, by Lyndsey Layton.…
