Part I: Connecting the Dots
**Select two learners for this assignment**Using the template provided, you are to connect the dots by filling in each of the following boxes with: what is known about the children, one IEP goal (e.g., long-term or short-term), what evidence from prior observation supports what you already know about the children, how would you go about planning instruction, how would you collaborate with colleagues, how would you engage families, and how will you report progress based on the goals.
Part II: Plan for Implementation of Activity

Considerations when developing the lesson plan
• The current unit of study
• The learners’ and their IEP goals to be address
• The strategies that would be used to enhance the learners’ learning experiences
• The Common Core Standards
• The strand/core standard
• The objective of each activity (e.g., concept to be taught)

• Materials needed to execute the activity
• How will you monitor learners’ progress
Part III: At-home Connection *Needs to be written in narrative form*

When citing your chosen sources, do not include the first names of the authors or the title of the article in your narrative.

Instructions
Candidates will read four current (2012 – present) professional journal articles directly related to
educating or working with students with disabilities. The articles should be useful to the
candidate’s teaching, directly related to a specific topic, as well as related directly to the focus of
this course.
Part 1: Introduction. Provide the foundation of your paper by starting with a research question.
The articles you choose should provide information to answer this question. This section should
be between half a page to a full page.
Part 2: Literature Review. Summarize, critique, and connect the articles to the text readings in
4-6 pages of content in APA style. This should not be a sequential summary of the articles, but a
synthesis of the information gained from the readings, using topics/themes as headings to guide
the content. The content should supplement the material in the text, not duplicate it. Use third
person. Do not use direct quotes, unless absolutely necessary, such as when defining a term or
stating specific legal code. The end of this section should include a summary that answers the
research question posed in part 1.
When citing your chosen sources, DO NOT include the first names of the authors or the title of
the article in your narrative.
Part 3: Reflection. The project must include reflection which connects research to practice (ie.
how is this information useful to classroom teachers?).
Candidates must include an abstract – an abstract generally sits on its own page.
Use APA 7th edition format. Use third person. Avoid contractions. Avoid hyperbole (“most”,
“extremely” “every parent”).
In addition to a reference page, candidates must include an annotated bibliography. The
annotated bibliography and PDF copies of each article must be uploaded to the Assignments
folder on ecampus prior to the final paper – see due dates on ecampus. All references should be
cited within the paper numerous times. Avoid citing a secondary source – find the original
article to make sure you are correctly summarizing the information in it.
Two common errors to note:
When you use an abbreviation, the first time it is introduced, use the full term with the
abbreviation in parentheses.
Example:
The student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) contains a statement of accommodations
to be used during instruction.
Only the first word in the title of the article should be capitalized on the reference page.
Example:
Vanderbilt, J. H., & Lafayette, V. A. (2009). Making accommodations work for students in the special
education setting. Teaching Exceptional Children, 65(2),28-295.

This paper must be a minimum of 8 pages of content in length and must not exceed 12 pages.

The Philosophy of Special Education is the context for candidates to demonstrate skills related to
CEC Standards: #7 (Professional and Ethical Practice), #1 (Child Development and Early
Learning), #2 (Partnering with Families), and #3 (Collaborating and Teaming).
Project Overview:
The goal of this paper is to create a document that provides a reflective discussion of special
education principles and practices, as well as a plan to use those principles and practices in your
teaching. You should reflect on foundational knowledge of the field, best practices in addressing
individual differences in a supportive, culturally-responsive, inclusive learning environment.
This paper should be written based on your current knowledge of the special education field and
personal experiences with individual with exceptionalities. It includes a reflection of your
philosophy of special education and should be based on what you know about the special
education teaching profession. You should include knowledge on educating students in a diverse
classroom (to include students of varying cultures, with and without disabilities, and English
Language Learners).
Your philosophy statement will become a “working document.” Your statement may be used in
other courses, and you may eventually use a polished product in your teaching portfolio to use in
professional interviews. This discussion and reflection may (and should) take a considerable
amount of time and thought, so plan accordingly.
This paper must be a minimum of 8 pages of content in length and must NOT exceed 12 pages.
This paper must be uploaded to Foliotek.
Use the CEC Initial Practice-Based Professional Preparation Standards for Special Educators to
guide the discussion of your practices.
Address each section with a reflective discussion of the meaning and importance of the
standard, and a detailed plan for including the standard in your teaching and professional
practices.
