Wow. That was even more amazing than you described to me last night. Really an truly, it was. Stirred something inexplicable in me.Yearning for more than what exists now for children like Zoey, for children like Joe, for the kids we are trying to help through Mission iPossible and the truth be told, kids like me, when I struggled in school way back when. Has me asking what is it I can do, in my little tiny corner of this world, to illicit change? There has got to be something.There just has to be.Off to share the video. Least I can be doing.
Thanks for the link. I'd heard about the series, but couldn't catch it. Wanted to track it down online. Looking forward to watching it ... unfortunately at least one of the comments from viewers was a real bummer. Ignorance along the lines of ... LD kids aren't worth the investment. Sigh. Gonna have to count to ten and tackle a reply to that one.
What can I say...simply inspirational, not typical of Massachusetts; but absolutely inspirational!
Pale: I've learned to NEVER read comments after articles in the big public sphere about disability. It's profoundly depressing.
Though I don't work in an inclusive setting any longer, we do use many of these tools w/ our students. Sharing. Thanks.
I watched this the other evening on TV. My husband is learning disabled and said he wished there had been programs like that when he was in school. I thought the most touching part was when the father of the boy with learning diabilities got choked up talking about the program. They mentioned that when they were fiming in the classroom there were 5 professionals working with the twenty-three 2nd graders, 7 of whom had disabilities. I would be interesting to see how the classroom worked when there were just the two classroom teachers working with those students.
thanks for sharing this. as a mother of 2 learning disabled kids, i love to hear about these kinds of learning environments. if only we could change the public schools...
