The case study I chose is Case 8:1 A “Surprise” Fire Drill. This case is about a teacher, Ms. Foster, who disagrees with the special education teacher, Ms. Stintson, about her student named Aiden who has autism. (Gorski & Pothini, 2018). Ms. Foster becomes frustrated with the IEP objectives because she feels that Aiden progresses just as well as the other students (Gorski & Pothini, 2018). Ms. Stintson, however, reminds Ms. Foster the importance of following the IEP objectives and when the principal warns her about the surprise fire drill, she approaches Ms. Foster about the plan for Aiden during the fire drill. Ms. Stinitson planned to arrive prior to the fire drill to give Aiden the sound reducing headphones and walk him out (Gorski & Pothini, 2018). Ms. Foster did not agree with this plan and she believed if Aiden received the headphones, her other students would know about the fire drill and it would not be a surprise. Ms. Stinitson wanted to inform the principal of the situation but she worried that it would create future conflict between her and Ms. Foster (Gorski & Pothini, 2018).
