Benji, a student in your class, exhibits some behaviors that aren't typical to other students in your class. At first, you thought he was extremely gifted and likely to be an overachiever, but as time has passed, you have realized that although he can tell you facts and can learn information quickly, he can't really apply his new knowledge. He also has difficulty getting along with his peers and has an almost all-consuming interest in comic books. He also becomes very upset if something unexpected happens in class. As you've gotten to know Benji, you begin to suspect that he is exhibiting characteristics of
  a. Asperger's Syndrome.
  b. a learning disability.
  c. attention deficit and hyperactivity.
  d. an emotional or behavioral problem.

Ques. 2

When modifying whole-class instruction to meet widely varying student needs, teachers sometimes insist that all students complete the basic work before moving to more engaging, interesting activities. This strategy is
  a. ineffective, because whole-class instruction is intended to be just that: instruction for the whole class. All students should be doing the same thing throughout the lesson period.
  b. effective, because in life, you often are expected to eat your vegetables before you get dessert, and the same principle applies to motivating students.
  c. effective, because all students can access the engaging activities if they work diligently and efficiently.
  d. ineffective, because low-achieving or unmotivated students may never make it to the fun and engaging activities.

  a. I'm glad to have this information, just as I'm glad to have access to the boys' cumulative records  but I'm going to take it with a grain of salt..
  b. I'm so glad he told me this. Now I can start out really tough on these two boys so they know they can't get away with anything..
  c. Well, I can always give them lots of skill sheets to do and tell them that they can't participate in the really exciting activities until they've completed the worksheets. That should motivate them..
