As a teacher, you will be faced with innumerable situations in which an event in a student’s life affect that student’s performance in your class. This could include pregnancy, or birth of a child; relationship problems, divorce, or death; financial problems; full-time or part-time employment schedules or obligations; travel needs; illness; medical or psychological disabilities or disorders.
Think about how you might address one or more of these situations in a way that respects the student’s dignity and at the same time is fair and just to both the student and the student’s peers in class. Will you make accommodations, and if so, what kinds? Are there cases in which no accommodations should be made? Talk about your own reflection process and how you would go about coming to decisions about these types of situations.
