The Resource Room

Page history last edited by kristen 14 years, 8 months ago

It may seem that most mainstreamed students are really only partially mainstreamed.  The mainstream classes they usually attend are classes like physical education and art and they learn their core subjects in a resource room.  The resource room is the core of partial mainstreaming in public schools.  The resource room is a special education room that is equipped with specially trained teachers and developed with the student's disabilities in mind.  The partially mainstreamed students go back and forth between classrooms, which could cause problems with socializing with their peers.  The constant change between classrooms can interrupt the day and there is a lot of time out of the learning environment trying to get from the mainstreamed class to the resource room.


For students who are not ready to be fully mainstreamed, partial mainstreaming and the resource room is a great option.  They can interact with deaf and hearing peers, while having an educational plan directed to their learning styles and tailored to their needs.
