The resource room is for students who are classified and qualify for Special Education services under the federal law IDEA. Students are assisted on an individual basis according to their own Individual Education Plan. The course objectives are to provide tutorial instruction and organizational support for each student as needed, to support the individual student's IEP objectives and to communicate with the student's other teachers and parents. The resource program will support and reinforce the instructional plans of the general education classroom teacher. The resource teacher will provide assistance with all of the student's academic courses, specifically concentrating on the student's deficit area(s). The resource teacher will provide assignments related to career exploration. Skills to be taught include organization, note-taking, writing assignments, following directions, listening skills, career exploration, self-concept, and self-advocacy in addition to deficit area skills. The student receives an elective unit for this tutorial course, which contributes toward the elective quota for graduation. My goal is to assist the student to become an independent lifelong learner.
