Discuss with your mentor what you observed and noted about the identified students during your classroom observation.

Clinical Field Experience C: Research-Based Intervention and Remediation Strategies

English language arts can be challenging for many students, often due to difficulties with reading comprehension and written expression as well as speaking and listening skills. It is important to identify the specific areas in need of improvement so the appropriate intervention can be implemented to thoughtfully differentiate instruction for students to develop necessary skills.

Allocate at least 3 hours in the field to support this field experience.

Part 1: Identifying Student Challenges

With the help of your mentor, identify three students with similar literacy challenges who would benefit from differentiation, intervention, and remediation strategies in ELA. Observe the students during at least one ELA lesson and complete “Part 1: Identifying Student Challenges” on the “SPD-581 Research-Based Intervention and Remediation Strategies” template.

Part 2: Selecting Research-Based Intervention, Remediation, and Differentiation Strategies

Discuss with your mentor what you observed and noted about the identified students during your classroom observation. Collaborate with your mentor to develop research-based intervention and remediation strategies to strengthen the literacy skills of the students in the small group. Identify one specific intervention strategy and one specific remediation strategy you can implement in the “Clinical Field Experience D: Applying Intervention Strategies.” Work with your mentor to complete “Part 2: Selecting Research-Based Intervention and Remediation Strategies” on the “SPD-581 Research-Based Intervention and Remediation Strategies” template.

Use any remaining field experience hours to provide support or assistance to the class as directed by your mentor.
