Module 4 –Classroom visit

I, unfortunately, do not have my own classroom right now- I substitute teach.  But I do feel that bringing those with disabilities into the classroom environment is an important aspect of the social classroom experience and learning how to deal with those who have disabilities. It would give students a chance to see life through another’s eyes just for a moment.  We tend to get caught up in our own world as adults, and students are even more caught up in their own lives and they tend to think everyone sees the world as they do.Giving them the opportunity to meet someone who not only sees the world differently, but navigates through it in a different way as well, would be a tremendous opportunity to teach students to accept all and understand the obstacles that some people must face everyday, as well as the way they overcome those obstacles.
