"It reflected Shayne's unique approach to building community throughout the processes of leaning. Within the web activities, Shayne and her co-workers systematically developed opportunities for their students to engage with literacy and numeracy skills, problem-solving and critical thinking processes, and interpersonal capacities, Thought the children may not have been aware of it, leaning was always a central concern."
I think all schools that have a special education programs need to have dedicated people like Shayne that know how to keep the students attention and keep them leaning at the same time. Where i work, about a year ago we hired someone with special needs. On his first day the people working at that time had the person that was going to school to be a special education teacher train him on what to do. I think anyone could have shown him what to do but they assumed he needed more training then any other person would have. It so not true. He is a good worker and now he is friends with everyone but i didnt like how he was treated different on his first day just because he had some kind of special needs.
