As a special education leader, you will have the opportunity to observe teachers in a variety of settings with students with varying exceptionalities. In order to ensure that students with exceptionalities are succeeding in math and science classes, you must not only be able to evaluate existing instructional practice(s), but also make recommendations for improving evidence-based instruction and for intervention strategies.
For this Assignment you will conduct additional research on evidence-based instructional practices for math and science, based on the selected age, grade, and disability level of your choice, which you will further recommend to pertinent stakeholders.
· Review the module’s Learning Resources. Reflect on the instructional strategies identified and whether or not you would recommend use of the strategies for enhancing instruction for students with varying exceptionalities.
· Select an age range and disability level (mild, moderate, or severe).
· ToolkitConduct a search for four peer-reviewed articles published within the last 3 years (two regarding evidence-based math interventions and two regarding evidence-based science interventions). You may use the peer-reviewed article selected for the Discussion as one of your four articles.
· Identify at least 10 evidence-based interventions for math and science (5 interventions for each subject) that would support diverse learners within your classroom and/or school.
Compose a 2- to 3-page paper that includes the following:
Section 1: Research Analysis
Evaluate the selected articles, addressing the following questions:
· What did the authors conclude regarding the effectiveness of the intervention? Are the conclusions justified?
· To what population do these results generalize? Do the results support a culturally diverse population?
· Is the intervention the most appropriate when instructing diverse learners? Has the intervention been proven to be effective among the identified disability category?
· How might the potential findings lead to positive social change for diverse learners?
