Students are frequently expected to complete multistep tasks within a range of academic or classroom routines and to do so independently.

Doabler, Christian T.; Nelson, Nancy J.; Clarke, Ben – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2016
Convincing evidence suggests that a considerable number of U.S. students struggle to develop mathematics proficiency. One subgroup of students who have a high probability of mathematical failure is English learners (ELs), who now represent 10% of the U.S. student population; 70% of these students speak Spanish at home (Fry & Passel, 2009). ELs…

Ansley, Brandis M.; Houchins, David; Varjas, Kris – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2016
In addition to the stressors common to many K-12 teachers, such as high-stakes testing, a lack of autonomy, and high mental and emotional demands, special educators also address the unique needs of their students, team-teach, and maintain caseload responsibilities (Emery & Vandenberg, 2010). Many who enter the profession are fulfilled by the…
