Q1: An educator overhears a conversation between two students. One of the students is talking about witnessing other students picking on a student with an intellectual disability during the daily walk home. The behavior described includes taunting, pushing, and taking personal possessions. The educator hears the student say that he feels bad for the student who is being picked on but is afraid to confront his peers or report the behavior, particularly since the activity is not happening on school grounds. Discuss how the educator can address this issue. Include evidence from the “Model Code of Ethics for Educators (MCEE)” and “Professional Dispositions of Learners” to support your ideas.
Q2: You have just finished a lesson on solving inequalities and handed students a worksheet to complete silently. While the students were working independently, you decided to check your email, not realizing that your computer screen was still being projected to the class. You open an email from the principal Mrs. Russell, who is following up on a student, Rebecca Johnson, who was recently referred to receive services on an Individual Education Program. You realized what had occurred once you heard the students giggling at the screen. You quickly unplugged the computer from the projector and told the students to get back to work. What should you do next to protect the student’s privacy? Include evidence from “Model Code of Ethics for Educators (MCEE)” and “Professional Dispositions of Learners.” SPD 500 GCU Weekly Discussions
