  Case: Math or Reading
A second grade student is a struggling reader, but can complete math facts and problems excellently. When given the formative math assessment, the student failed. He had to read the word problems and he didn't know the words. Should the student be penalized for not knowing the math vocabulary? Or should the teacher read the test to him?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
No...My daughter has an IEP for reading and her accommodations are served in math as well because she cannot read the math terms. I feel that if a students struggles in reading and receives accommodations in reading then it should include all subjects, because even in math there is reading. She loves math and she is excellent in math fact, but again she cannot read word problems. I do think that the student would do better if the teacher reads the problems to them and I think the student would feel less like a failure if he understood what the questions were being asked.

Comments: I agree with your comment. Just because they can't read doesn't mean that they will be good in math, it just means that in certain portions of math he will need accommodations for. Reading the questions out loud to the student would be one of those accommodations.

Comments: I completely agree with your solution to this situation. It is important to incorporate a students IEP into each and every class and subject they are taking. Just because reading is the issue, doesn't mean that reading doesn't appear in subjects like math, science, and even throughout life.
