SPE 357 Week 7: Characteristics of Emotional/Behavioral Disabilities and Strategies to Teach Individuals With EBD
Most of this one is the practicum hours and log which I have already done. The writing part is shorter.
Benchmark Assignment and Rubric:
a) Make a three-column chart with the following column headings: Observation, Reflection, and Recommendation. Using your notes from your practicum experience, complete the columns according to the following:
i) In the Observation column, explain what you observed in terms of instructional practice, behavior interventions and modifications, and systems. Be thorough and complete in your observations.
ii) In the Reflection column, write your reflection in terms of whether or not you believe this instruction, behavior, or system is effective. Do this for each observation you make. Support your opinion with information you have gained from this course (lecture, text, discussion, etc.).
iii) In the Recommendation column, discuss what you would recommend in terms of improving that which you observed (be specific). Use the course lectures, readings, and discussion forum to inform this recommendation.
b) APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
