Special Education Strategies for Bringing up Grades

Do you have a student with special needs who is falling behind in their grades?

In today’s Teacher Tips newsletter, the Watson Institute shares strategies to help you work with your students to bring up their grades for classes or subjects with which they are struggling.

  1. If you are able to get a facsimile report card a few weeks before progress reports are sent home, this can help you identify areas in which the student needs to improve.
  2. After reviewing the areas of difficulty, create a concrete, structured plan to help the student achieve success in these areas.
  3. Make an outline of tasks or assignments that need to be completed in order to bring the grade up. Include deadlines for completion of each task. You can include a visual calendar with deadlines written on the corresponding dates.
