Teaching Tips: Services Provided by the Resource Teacher
The resource teacher is primarily responsible for teaching students in the resource class. However, certain services may be offered to general education teachers if the provision of those services would enhance the likelihood of success for students with learning disabilities. These include the following types of activities:
- Alternative testing situations in which tests from the mainstream class are taken in the resource room, where the teacher can help read the questions.
- Assistance with homework or classwork assignments in the resource class.
- Suggestions for materials and teaching approaches for use in the general education class.
- Testing time to identify problem areas in the basic-skills curriculum, in order to enhance the general education teacher's planning.
- Observations in the general education class, in order to identify problems that the child has.
- Planning time so that the same content may be covered in the resource room and general education class at the same point during the year.
- Crisis-intervention services to assist the general education teacher when a behavioral problem develops.
- Other services as needed, when the resource teacher's time will allow them.
