Today’s Prompt: Pick up the nearest book and flip to page 29. What’s the first word that jumps off the page? Use this word as your springboard for inspiration. Today’s twist: write the post in the form of a letter.
I do hope that you will enjoy this letter. The book that I got the term from was Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper. If you have not read the book, I do recommend it. It is an amazing read.
To the person who contrived the term “Learning Communities”:
I first want to congratulate you on creating a words that have little to no meaning. Most of it is because no one really knows what it means, or how to apply you term in the world of Special Education. I would like to take this time and ask you what you mean and how you expect us to apply such a term.
What does it mean to have a learning community?
What does it look like?
How does it reach all of our unique students? Please do provide details for each type of disable student and how this environment will benefit them.
Do our students help one another? How can we help guide our students to helping one another?
Finally, how do we help our students apply this term to the real world?
These are just some of the basic questions that we need in order for all of us to use your term in the classroom. We would love to help our students reach their full potential and be successful in the real world.
Please respond as quickly as possible, so we can create better guidelines to help all our students in need.
