AbstractThe purpose of this phenomenological study was to explore the factors affecting elementary teacher’s ability to understand the academic needs of their racially, culturally, and ethnically diverse special education students and the ways in which their values and beliefs influenced their use of culturally responsive practices in the special education classroom. The findings from this study are significant because they could add to the knowledge base of strategies to close or eliminate the achievement gap of racially, culturally, and ethnically diverse students in special education programs. Furthermore, these experiences may provide an additional opportunity for local educational agencies (LEAS) to examine the impact of culturally responsive teaching practices on the achievement of RCED students in the special education classroom.
In this lesson, students will explore where key locations and routines will occur within their classroom. They will learn to associate these phrases with a visual schedule to help aid in this discovery process. Students will at the end of the unit be able to move throughout the classroom with little to no adult support outside of the individual's IEP requirements.
This mini-unit is part of a much larger content focus on Linear Functions in an 8th grade Resource Math class. Students will be learning about the basics in functions and their use in Pre-Algebra. This unit allows students to receive direct interaction with teachers to receive content in a managable format, while giving them opportunities to learn and discover some of the content on their own. The mini-unit focus solely on the different representations of functions in their basic form. By the end of the unit, students will be able to identifying and compare and contrast different representations of functions.

In this lesson, students explore where to find key locations within our school community (classrooms/playgrounds/ bathroom etc.) and who are located in these school community location (teachers/office staff/community helpers) that the students will interact with daily/weekly.
Group lesson - Who is located at home and what rooms are in your house? We will then create a simple chart to showcase our answers. Students then will decide on what rooms and people might also be located at the school.
