I teach a special education class grades k-5. I have 14 students with one full time TA and one part time TA. I have all of my students all with the exception of the 45 min they go to special area classes (music, art, pe) with their non-disabled peers. I am responsible for teaching all grade levels, subjects, standards, IEP goals, social skills, common sense and everything else that goes along with special needs students. Some of my students will take the regular state assessments on their grade level (with modifications such as read aloud) and others will participate in an alternate portfolio assessment (data driven work samples. Much more in-depth and time consuming than it sounds.) Does anyone else have a class like this? If so, how do you handle teaching all of these standards? I would love any advice that anyone has to offer.
