Accomodating students with learning
Each teaching moment is adjusted to optimize progress for the individual student.
The Campus Director works with each student and family to set goals, create a customized learning plan, and choose just the right teacher to fit a student’s motivational and instructional needs.
Brightmont Academy offers a new beginning for students with learning disabilities.
Our one-to-one instruction method, combined with knowledgeable, caring teachers, provides the perfect opportunity for success.
This will help your students see the connections between what they're learning inside and outside the classroom. Conversely, teachers can promote learning through classroom routines.
For instance, a child learning to wash hands during bathroom breaks can also be taught science concepts (body parts, hygiene and disease prevention, water conservation), reading (bathroom signage), antonyms (hot/cold, left/right), and math (counting). Allow a child to integrate their most-loved characters and possessions into your classroom reading time.
Whether a child is fixated on one thing or has a few areas of intense interest, there are many simple strategies you can use to work those fascinations into your instruction. For example, one US history teacher explained the U. role in the UN and its relationship to other nations by drawing an analogy with the Super Friends cartoon characters. If you're working on a math lesson, consider asking a student to write a problem, diagram, or pattern that relates to his particular area of interest.
Beyond differentiation of reading and task demands, these students may need targeted instructional attention to assure success.
The following ideas for teachers include cognitive and socio-emotional development considerations, written expression and organizational considerations, and ideas for working with twice-exceptional learners.
The teacher: Some students in Project Athena may be twice-exceptional, both gifted and learning-disabled or attention deficit.
Those students may require additional accommodation approaches to be employed.
