SPD 310 Topic 4 Clinical Field Experience A: Interview and Observation
Reciprocal and respectful collaboration and communication are important when building an effective team environment for a special education teacher, the general education teacher, and paraeducators.
Allocate at least 2.5 hours in the field to support this field experience.
Observe, interview, and collaborate with a certified special education teacher in a Grade 4-8 public or private inclusion or resource special education setting. Address the following:
- What is one type of co-teaching model have you used?
- Did your co-teaching experience go well using that model? If so, why do you feel it worked well? If not, what advice do you have for someone planning to use that model?
- What strategies have you used that have been effective in co-teaching?
- How do you handle a situation in which a co-teaching model is not working?
- Which co-teaching model do you feel is most effective with your students? Why?
- What advice do you have for someone when first beginning a co-teaching model?
Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.
In 250-500 words, summarize your mentor teacher’s feedback and suggestions, along with your classroom experiences. Explain how you will use all these experiences in your future professional practice.
