    Analysis of American Horror Story: Freak Show In class we have learned about many different aspects of disability.

    standard was by sending notes home to parents explaining why their child was on yellow or below. Another way I met this standard was by grouping my students by their “reading” level for literacy stations. I gathered data on my students and my personal observations of each of them, and from there I placed them where I thought they would benefit the most. Standard 2, content knowledge, was met by integrating my lessons. Since we only have 30 minutes for science/social studies every other day, I…
