Martin Luther King JR Elementary School
I interned at Martin Luther King JR Elementary School. My experience there was very pleasant. I was placed in an ESE class with fourth and fifth graders. I introduced myself to the class and to the teachers. Ms.Henry is the teacher, and Mrs.Bowe is the special aid. They both were so nice and helpful.
Exceptional Student Education, (ESE) is an important program for all learning disabled children. ESE provides Educational programs and services for students with special learning needs. An ESE classroom is composed of students of varying disabilities (VE.) Every child with a disability who is eligible for ESE will have an individual education plan (IEP.) An IEP is a personal written plan for each student according to his or her special needs and disabilities. The IEP reminds me of a road map for these children. It describes what the child can already do and what the child needs to learn in order to reach his or her goals. The IEP also identifies the kinds of help the child needs in order to learn. This is an idea of what “ESE” is.
My two days at the school was a lesson well learned. I hope the following can give you an idea of what to expect and s
Her classroom material and structure were laid out and labeled clearly. Henry said, that all you do is repeat yourself with them. Henry was done lecturing, that is when some of the students realized they needed to know what was going on. Bowe will try and go around and give extra help with the subjects that where each child is weakest. ) It helps give the child a sense of independence and responsibility. In the classroom there are three different groups. Then the class colored each sign, talked about it, and then played a game after they mastered it. I t requires a lot of patience and a real determination to make a difference in their lives. Each center was set up neat and clear so the children can understand their lessons. I t will only benefit me in the future when I have children like this in my class. Bowe does a lot of one on one with the children. There is no right or set way to teach children with ESE. The class is on a first grade level.
