right0Save Draft8. Progress monitoring of student learning
Adaptation
Stuttering effect increases when the student is nervous hence I will assess and monitor her progress individually. Also, I will monitor her progress by asking the student to write my oral questions and speak with her individually about her progress instead of doing it publicly.
Rationale
The progress monitory has been modified in order to increase her confidence and reduces anxiety due to her language problem of stuttering.

right0Save Draft9. Sharing results of the student learning with the student and/or the family
Adaptation
Just like all students, I will put or mark comment at the end of their assignment and review the content with the students as a whole in the upcoming class. With the student, I will meet her outside, with her parent and therapist if possible to share her results and chart her success and discuss her strength and weakness as well as performance in general.
Rationale
Sharing her results with her therapist is an important approach that will assist the student to move a step forward towards higher academic level.

right0Step 5: Reflection on Connecting Instructional Planning to Student Characteristics
Directions:Read your responses to the questions in Steps 1-4. Think about what you have learned by completing this task, including the characteristics of the two focus students, your instructional planning for the whole class, and your adaptations for the focus students. Respond to the questions below Save Draft1. What information that you collected for the whole class and/or for the two focus students most influenced your planning for this lesson?
In your response, describe how and why the information was influential and why you found it to be so.
The linguistics abilities was the information that mostly influenced my planning for this lesson. The information was influential for making adaptation of the whole curriculum plan to my lesson. As a teacher, I find it very important that I make content accessible and easier to understand to all students regardless of either they are ELL or EOS, disabilities, with or without prior skills and knowledge of the content.
Having knowledge of the two students gives me an opportunity to create and design my plan in such a way that will reach, engage and involve all students

right0Save Draft2. How will you use what you have learned regarding connecting instructional planning to student characteristics in the future?
What I have learnt from this TPA assignment is actually an aspect of reinforcement and profound understanding of what I already knew. In this case, it is important that we encourage and motivate students to increase their effort. This is the most basic and primary principle of any teacher in the faculty of education. In order to make the content to be universally acceptable, teachers need to talk to individual students, discover their interests, goals and identify their challenges with their former teachers, parents, cum files and counsellors.
I will use lesson leant from TPA assignment as example of how I will design and create my lesson plan based on the crucial information I wish to collect, methods to apply or employ and how such information will impact academic performance of my future students. Hence, In the future, I will have an understanding of how I can connect my instructional planning to the student characteristics.
