No, you should not have to modify the curriculum. The general ed teacher should be doing it. They usually have at least 3 levels of materials that come with the curriculum along with suggestions to modify it in their teacher editions. Talk to the case manager and let her/him know this is going on. The teacher should be treating this student as part of the class too. The classroom teacher could borrow materials from a grade level below or find something on their level. Our paras can reteach something Iíve done in the special ed room. They can also monitor progress and document it. We have sheets with the studentsí goals/objectives so they can check how they are doing on those. But to answer your question-the gen ed teacher needs to be modifying the curriculum and including the student whenever possible. You need to report that this isnít happening. Go to the case manager first. If that doesnít help, then go to the next level.
