Belonging
I have a new student who has just transferred to self-contained from general ed. He is unhappy and feels this work is for babies, even though he is not do well with it. How do I involve him when he is upset to be working beside a student with visible disabilities?

Present working with the student as a positive thing for him to boost his own self confidence. For example, offer the cooperative learning as a way for him to help the student he feels he doesn't belong with. Of course, do not put down the other students, but present the assignments in a manner in which he feels is aiding the other students. This may calm him down and feel less anxious about having to work with other disables students.

Try to make the lessons entertaining for the student. He needs time to settle in and get used to the new classroom, but for now make sure you include him - ask questions and motivate him to complete assignments. Treat everyone equally and make sure activities are suitable for all students.

I like your idea here. after a little time and extra involvement he should be responding much better.

You could do classroom icebreaker activities or get to know each other activities. Maybe if the student can see how interesting each of these students are he will be less turned off by working with or by them. You may need to create a separate work space for the student for a while until he is comfortable working in the classroom. It could be difficult personally for this students to adapt to a new environment.

This student needs motivation. He's upset that he was moved from the mainstream classroom. Providing this student with a sense of purpose will motivate him to do his work. Pairing him up with the visually impaired student is a great start to establishing this motivation. Convince the student that he is here for a reason and that is to help the other students and once he has accomplished this mission, he can go back to the mainstream classroom.

pull the student aside. this will give you the time to talk on a personal level to try and understand the student. you involve him by telling him he is the eyes of the team and his partner is the ears of the team. tell him he has to work together with his teammate to help him accomplish the assignment.

Design lessons specifically for this student, or use differentiated instruction to mold lessons for this student. Tell him that its not forever, of course. This situation is actually just to help him advance. If he sticks with it for a while, he can actually get a head of the game. Also, give him a job if he feels like he is above the actual work. Have him help other students in order to make credit. Partner him up with another student and have them do their work, while he is also earning credit.

You can make him a helper and have him sit with a partner and work together. Even though he is doing the work himself, he will feel as if he is important by helping others and you.

I think that if you give the student opportunities to work with the other kids in the class, he will see that he can learn from the other kids. If the student isn't doing well with the work, you should pull the student aside to work together. Figure out what the student is struggling with. If they are struggling with the content, then you can adjust your instruction to meet his needs. You can find out more information by working with the student individually and allowing the student to work with others.

It is understandable that he would be unhappy. I would recommend sitting down with him and possibly explaining why you are doing the assignments you are doing and how every one is different and has different strengths and needs. I think talking through the problem will be helpful to the student. Differentiate content.
