How has that understanding affected the course of this individual’s life?

Watch ted talk video and answer these questions –

Please reflect on the following questions in 5-7 sentences:
How did the adults in your chosen account shape the child’s understanding of himself or herself?
How did the adults shape the child’s understanding of disability?
How has that understanding affected the course of this individual’s life?
The previous sessions have been dedicated to helping you reflect on your conception of disability. Your perspective on disability will inform everything you do and say to your students: how you speak to them, the expectations you communicate to them, and how you contextualize their academic and behavioral struggles. It is important that you dedicate this time to thinking about your thinking because parsing these issues will make you a better teacher and advocate.
In this session, you will choose one of two first-person accounts to gain greater perspective on how your understanding of disability can affect your students. Both of these accounts come from individuals with disabilities whose identities were shaped from an early age by the adults around them and, specifically, the ways in which those adults thought about disability.
You may decide to watch a Ted Talk by Aimee Mullins. Mullins is an athlete, model, and prominent thinker on prosthetic innovation. Mullins was born without fibulae and gained initial fame for her success as a runner at the 1996 Paralympics.

Provided permission, teach the created lesson plan to the group of selected students. During your lesson, ensure you are answering questions from your students, asking questions that support critical thinking and problem solving, and observing the understanding from each student (this might require formative assessments before, during, and after the lesson to determine understanding).
If you are not able to implement the lesson, speak with your instructor for an alternate assignment.
Use any remaining field experience hours to speak with your mentor teacher and, provided permission, seek out opportunities to observe and/or assist your mentor teacher and/or work with a small group of students on instruction in the classroom.
Part 3: Reflection
In 250-500 words, reflect and discuss the process of using pre-assessment data to develop a lesson plan. Discuss the following:
• How does data support the developed instruction, selected strategies, and differentiation strategies to meet learning needs?
• What modifications supported the learning outcome?
• What considerations need to be made regarding ethical issues when using student personal, background, and learning data to inform instructional planning?
Submit the “Clinical Field Experience C: Science Mini-Lesson Plan” and reflection as one deliverable.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
