Special Ed--HELP

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I got a call for subbing in special ed for middle school and high school. They called me because of my 'experience' which isn't saying much since my experience consists of a few observations and interactions with a couple of students I was familiar with. Therefore, I can see that they're needing [B]anyone[B] with an idea, but I'm not sure how to handle the classroom, management, activities, troubleshooting.....Can anyone help? Soon?

There are almost always paras/instructional aids who know the students and know the drill. Even if it's BD kids, it's do-able because there is a plan and you are part of a team of adults. I think of Sped as the ultimate "cushy" job!

I agree, Sped is usually a piece of cake! (And I just got called with a learning support job for tomorrow! )

It's tough, though, to give you more specific advice without knowing what kind of Sped classroom you're heading into: learning disabilities, behavior/ED issues, communication/autism, life skills/severe disabilities...there are a million possibilities.

I have been in many Special Ed classes where there is nothing for me to do. I was in a preK special ed yesterday trying to keep busy and got a high school special ed for today, which I eventually cancelled because I couldn't bear the thought of nothing to do for 6 hours. On the other hand, some classes I have gotten to actually participate in. It depends.

(Incidentally, do you remember how tiny preK kids are? And they were all bundled in heavy jackets with hoods on...oh jeez, they were so cute.)
