Question: Peter is a 12-year-old, fifth grade student with ADHD. Peter’s reading and math skills are two years below his grade level. Peter is repeating the grade, however, he is still struggling with his academic work and failing every subject. His teachers describe him as being disruptive and oppositional in class. Teachers complain that he does not pay attention and is very playful as a result he fails to complete all his tasks that are meant to be completed in class. Peter’s parents were contacted and the mother asserted that Peter is very playful, he also gets frustrated when he has to do his homework. According to Schuck and Crinella (2005), ADHD students are not dumb, lazy or out of control, they are smart kids who need to be assisted in order to be successful. QUESTION 1 1. As a Mathematics teacher, list and explain the intervention strategies you would apply in your teaching in assisting a child who is like Peter and why do you think your strategies will be effective? Substantiate your response by giving examples (16) • List and discuss the importance of at least 4 strategies (12) • Give examples as to how you will implement the four strategies. (4) 2. Who do you think are the role players in supporting a learner with learning barriers? List 3 role players and their functions in assisting the learner. (10) QUESTION 2 According to the SIAS (2015) document published by DBE, using differentiated assessment is crucial as an educator gets to know his/her learners and their different learning abilities. The goal is to meet learners where they are and to help them progress to the next step in their learning. Thus, it is a cyclical process: assessment and instruction inform each other. ➢ As a student teacher think of a learning area of your choice. Focusing on that learning area discuss and give examples on how you would use three different types of assessments to improve teaching and learning in your learning area and how you would use the assessments to assist all your learners to pass and achieve high marks in your learning area (24) Explain what is assessment for learning (3) Discuss the importance of this assessment (3) Give examples on how you would implement this in your learning area (2) Explain what is the assessment used for learning (formative) (3) Discuss the importance of this assessment (3) Give examples on how you would implement this in your learning area (2) Explain what is the assessment used for promotional purposes (summative) (3) Discuss the importance of this assessment (3) Give examples on how you would implement this in your learning area (2)

QUESTION 1: 1.1) Intervention Strategies for Peter a. Personalized Instructions: Since Peter has difficulty focusing and completing tasks, creating tailored assignments for him might help him remain motivated and engaged. Breaking down tasks into manageable chunks will prevent him from feeling overwhelmed. For instance, for a mathematics problem, rather than giving him the entire problem at once, break it down into simple steps for him to follow. b. Use of Technology: Introduce Peter to educational apps and online games that make learning fun. E.g. Prodigy for math, this approach turns learning into a play experience, which fits Peter's playful nature, and might help transform his attitude towards academic tasks. c. Regular Breaks: Given Peter's playful and energetic nature, implementing regular breaks during learning times can be helpful. After a short period of learning, allow Peter a short break to release some energy. This routine can increase Peter's ability to focus during actual learning periods. d. Positive Reinforcement: Praise Peter's efforts and improvements, no matter how minimal. Give him a token or small reward when he achieves a set goal. This strategy can boost his self-esteem and motivate him to do better. 1.2) Role Players in supporting Peter a. Teachers: Educators need to adapt their teaching style to Peter’s learning needs, remain patient, give him extra support and create a nurturing and non-distractive classroom environment. b. Parents: Peter's parents need to create a structured environment at home, help with homework and collaborate closely with teachers to ensure consistency in strategies employed. c. School Counselor/Psychologist: They will play a key role in providing individual or group therapy for Peter to manage his ADHD, and giving expert advice to both teachers and parents on strategies that can be employed at school and at home. QUESTION 2: 2.1) Differentiated Assessments a. Assessment for Learning: This is ongoing formative assessment used to regularly monitor students' understanding and progress. It helps teachers check if learning is taking place and if learners understand the content. For example, asking a student to explain a concept just taught or having a small class discussion. b. Assessment as Learning: These are self-assessment and peer-assessment strategies where learners assess their own work. This encourages learners to take charge of their learning and development. For example, learners can mark their own work using a provided answer sheet. c. Assessment of Learning: This usually happens at the end of a term or a course through tests or exams. It is used to assess whether students have met the learning objectives. For example, end-of-term tests or projects. Each of these assessments is crucial as they collectively provide a holistic view of a learner’s progress, thereby enabling teachers to tailor the learning process to meet individual learning needs.
