The school year has ended, so summer is here. We've already had 4 days of 90+ degrees, and then had it drop back into the 50's - so you know I'm in Wisconsin. I'm looking forward to travelling this summer, and spending time catching up on ... having time on my hands to do various things now that I'm done with my masters. Let's see what the coming months bring!

|Soon, there will a new batch of baby birds in my yard, growing and getting ready to test their wings!|

The journal I am submitting my article to is The National Association of Special Education Teachers http://www.naset.org/799.0.html Here is the link to my publication article: https://files.me.com/cyoho/rbc9r5 For publication purposes, I've removed the pictures of students. I am hopeful to have a submission response soon! I chose this publication because of its focus on special education. My hope is that by publishing here, at a time when schools are doing more and more inclusion, I will be able to show how that can be successful, even though my research was only in math. My ARP group consisted of 2/3 regular education students and 1/3 students with a learning disability. The success they had could also be replicated in other subject areas. If teachers are aware of this, they may be more accepting of inclusion for these students.
If I am not accepted for publication here, I will submit to Edutopia. I like the way the site is broken down by grade levels, core standards, various communities in education, blogs, etc. This seems to offer a wide range in which to find material and respond to it.

The National Association of Special Education Teachers http://www.naset.org/799.0.html . This journal is devoted to special education. I chose it because my research project took place in a regular education classroom which included students with learning disabilities. As more and more students rely less on pull-out services for students with special needs, I find it very important to highlight strategies that can improve the success these students have within the regular education classroom. The strategy I employed would be beneficial to all students, but especially those needing additional tools to assist them with learning and recalling information. If I am published, I hope I receive feedback from other teachers who have employed music. I would even welcome suggestions! The journal states that responses to requests for publication are made within 2 weeks. It's time to sit tight and wait.
