Summarize the findings from the articles that relate to your topic (Task 2b), then decide on your specific research question (Task 2c).
Task 2a. Statement of Problem (copy from Task 1)
Teachers use a limited amount of teaching resources to assist mild and moderate disability students during their classes.
Task 2b1. Article 1 Full reference details using APA6 style Bosibori, R., Ngao, G., Rop, N., & Nyongesa, W., (2015). Effect of Availability of Teaching and Learning Resources on the Implementation of Inclusive Education in Pre-School Centers in Nyamira North Sub-County, Nyamira County, Kenya. Journal of Education and Practice, 6(33):132-141. Summary of findings from article In their well-documented article, Bosibori et al. (2015) discusses the use of limited resources when dealing with learners who have physical and mental challenges. Their study revealed that teachers do not have the required resources to teach disabled children. In this case, it becomes and added challenge to the learners who are already naturally disadvantaged (Bosibori , et al. 2015 p. 136). Lack of enough resources makes it hard for them to understand concepts, because they already needed extra care. The problem starts in the pre-school, exposing the learning to learning difficulties from an early age. The study discussed the impacts of limited resources but did not give solutions to the identified problem.
Task 2b2. Article 2 Full reference details using APA6 style Onyango, W. (2014). Effects of Teaching and Learning Resources on Pre School Learners Transition to Class one: A Case Study of Rachuonyo South Sub-County, Journal of Education Practice, 5(34)
Summary of findings from article In this article, Onyango (2014) argues that most schools especially the public schools do not have the required teaching materials to help the teacher in grade one. Even if the learners are properly equipped in pre-school, they find it hard to deal with primary education because of lack of materials. The teachers are trained to deal with primary school students, but they have no material to teach the students in the transition class. Thus, they directly introduce the primary school workbooks which are hard for the young learners to absorb. Therefore, most of the learners develop a negative attitude towards education as it appears to be very hard. Further, Onyango points out that there is a bigger problem if the teacher is handling physically or mentally challenged learners. The government does not provide them with materials to handle such cases. Therefore, it is very challenging as the teacher is expected to deliver and take care of the disabled children without the resources. As a result, the disabled learners find it harder to get by with the education curriculum, a problem that would be less strict if the teachers had the right materials in the transition grades.
Task 2b3. Article 2 Full reference details using APA6 style Shupikai, Z. et al. (2015). Classroom Challenges: Working with Pupils with Communication Disorders. Journal of Education and Practice, 6(9) Summary of findings from article
According to Shupikai, et al. (2015), most of the learners with communication disorders have a mental problem. However, this mental problem is usually not known when they are in lower grades. In this case, when the learners are in grade 1, the teachers do not understand the condition they have. The only thing they know is that the learners are poor communicators, and that they do not understand the concept introduced properly as compared to the other learners. Shupikai, et al. (2015) note that the main problem associated with this issue is lack of the right teaching materials. The teachers are provided with general materials to teach the normal children. Unfortunately, those with communication disorder which arises from mental disabilities are left with no one to give them the concentration they require. As a result, the disorder worsens and they end up depreciating instead of improving.
Add more boxes if you review more than three articles
Task 2c. Research Question: specific question based on the problem and articles Should learners with physical and mental disability have a different curriculum with different learning materials?
