The key point I learned is that I have to be motivated as an instructor and should be curious as well as willing to learn new things in order to be a great motivator for students. In addition, its very important for me to focus on the intrinsic and extrinsic motivational factors. 

Comment on SETH SORONNADI's post: The way we engage with and instruct students with disabilities needs to change.  To help facilitate their learning, we must acknowledge this and make necessary adjustments to the lesson plans.  gaining that knowledge and creating a more inclusive teaching approach for all children with impairments will take time.

Assigning each group member a task or contribution that links to the work of other group members is one technique to stop kids from experiencing "feelings of disparity".

I know how you feel about these self-videos. I was afraid of the unknown about this initially. But got more comfortable as I went along.


It is possible to set up a service learning project so that students can select from a variety of possibilities rather than having them prescribed.

Comment on Andrea Walraven's post: very well said. Common sense is one of the major qualities/soft skill required to get any job done appropriately.

My takehome message from this wntire module is, that all staff members have a duty to secure the information of kids. If overheard, talking negatively about a student in the hallway may be a FERPA violation. 

Comment on Daniel Falk's post:


Since FERPA contains so many different components, it is crucial that everyone who works with students understands exactly what information may and cannot be disclosed.

Comment on Carmen Andreu's post
