Conditions of Use:

Here are some ways to help your children, students, clients, and people with learning disabilities set their own goals and reach them. Children should also be encouraged to set goals for learning, personal growth, and their future. When children learn to set goals and reach them, they can visualize their future, make good choices, and make their dreams come true. The Frostig Center did twenty years of research on what makes people with learning disabilities successful as adults: goal setting was one of six success attributes.

Being told that your child has a disability can be as traumatizing as learning of a family member's sudden death. Many parents are stunned by such news. Receiving such a message can produce overwhelming emotions of shock, disbelief, anxiety, fear, and despair. Within that moment, research has shown that some parents cannot distinguish between the unconscious wish for an idealized normal child from an unthinkable, sudden reality of one who is not. Here is help for teachers working with parents of children with disabilities.

Integers Lesson 1.4:   Adding same signed numbers using number line
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

For many adult students, positive and negative integers are an example of when math “keeps changing the rules.” This is the fourth of six lessons guiding students in constructing the abstract concepts necessary to understand adding positive and negative integers.
This lesson will review previous knowledge about negative numbers and teach adding integers with the same sign. The previous lesson focused on “real life situations” and this will teach expressing those real life situations on a number line. The actual problems will still be adding integers of the same sign because of the prevalence of confusion with adding two negative numbers.

Response to Intervention, A Primer for Parents
Conditions of Use:

A major concern for parents as well as teachers is how to help children who experience difficulty in school. All parents want to see their child excel, and it can be very frustrating when a child falls behind in either learning to read, achieving as expected in math and other subjects, or in getting along socially with peers and teachers. Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-step approach to providing services and interventions to struggling learners at increasing levels of intensity. RTI allows for early intervention by providing academic and behavioral supports rather than waiting for a child to fail before offering help.

Across the country, educators are beginning to expand RTI to secondary schools. Middle, junior, and high schools are very different places from elementary schools and, in fact, different from each other. Whether or not your school is presently implementing RTI, you will want to be prepared to ask and answer key questions regarding the opportunities RTI presents in high school settings.
