Single Student Focus Plan
Choose a student from your class. Using what we have learned in class, write an analysis of the student that contextualizes them as an individual while highlighting any particular behavioral concerns and possible meaning of those concerns. Be sure to consider the societal, institutional, classroom community specific understandings of why this particular behavior can be considered problematic and may need some instructional support, intervention or modification. Building from this analysis, create a plan for how you will work collaboratively with the student and with the classroom community to address the behavioral concern and facilitate stronger membership in the classroom for the individual. A strong piece will include theoretical foundations for your approach, a reflective analysis of your own positionality in relation to the individual student and the behavioral concern, specific methods drawn from coursework for gathering information for analysis of the student, specific methods drawn from coursework for supporting, intervening, or modifying the behavioral concern, a collaborative approach that considers all stakeholders.
