Identifying and Helping struggling students
Starts crying about small incidents
Pretend being bored and distracts others
Takes students' frustrations out or may be disruptive during class
Sleeps during the class
Begins to argue with you over school work
Too many sick days with a reason that has nothing to do with their physical health
Reciprocal learning: Students can share what they’ve learned to the whole classroom. It would be better to share with a picture to help students with disabilities understand clearly.
Use Graphic organization: mapping out an idea with chart and diagrams increases student's willingness
Set a goal: when I was teaching music, I always asked students to set goals they want to achieve during the class. It helps students to clarify what they want to know during the class.
Form scaffolds: we can clarify between what students already know and what they cannot do on their own.
Small work groups: It is a great opportunity for students to learn from each other and increase their knowledge efficiently
providing answers to common questions: we can help them get quick answers without interrupting the rest of the class.

2.Students are evaluated if they really need a special education
Involve a parent and school counselor to see a progress
Final decision by a reevaluation
