getting the assignment done in time, or misunderstanding the instructions and getting a “bad” grade are common with students with anxiety. To address this student’s needs and the needs of all students all assignments’ directions will be clearly written and verbally given. The students will have the opportunity to ask questions about any misunderstandings they may have. However, it is known that students with anxiety may not voice their own misunderstanding to the whole group. This is why I will also present the students with the option of writing down their concerns. There is time allotted in the lesson for question and answers. This is the time I will clear up any misconceptions about the assignment or the course materials. Gifted/Accelerated learners: Students that are accelerated have the unique need of needing to be challenged more rigorously than other students. These students may easily get bored with the regular curriculum. They also tend to get overlooked in the regular education classroom. In order to engage students that are gifted, I will charge with the option of working individually to research a specific species of butterfly and moth in which to compare

and contrast. They will have to create a Power Point in which they will present to the class. Some students who are gifted have great leadership abilities. Keeping this point in mind these are the students who I will pair with my students who tend to need extra help, or lack self-motivation to complete a task. Gifted students need the challenge of working with others that may not work at the same pace as they do so that they can feel useful in the regular education classroom. They want to have a purpose. However, it’s important not to always single them out because middle school age students also want and need to feel as though they are part of the whole, they need to belong. They may already feel different than their peers because of their giftedness.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
