I am working on an Action Research paper for my Masters program at Lipscomb. The really cool thing about it is that I am able to use the strategies that I am doing everyday in my classroom as part of my research and action. I am specifically writing the paper on the use of performance contracts with students receiving Moderate Intervention Services (MIS). In addition to using performance contracts, I will be setting up a token economy to see how it affects student performance.

Through the course of my research, I kept coming to the resources from Utah State Office of Education’s Least Restrictive Behavioral Interventions (LRBI) and thought I would share that here.


Exceptional Education

The term Exceptional Education is used in Metro Nashville Public School District in lieu of Special Education. I understand that terminology morphs with the times and as certain terms gain negative connotation. I am curious how widespread this term is used. I understand that there are courses in Kentucky State University that use the term.

Where else is it used?

Hi! I am Reuben Stugart. I decided I needed a place to collect and share my professional ramblings. I am currently a Special Education teacher providing Moderate Intervention Services to students in 6th through 8th grade. I will be using this as a place to share findings that I come across, thoughts and insights regarding those and as a way to connect to other educators. Please join in the conversation with me and read my about page to find out a little more about my experience.
