This is my problem statement athat I am w riting for a paper that I am preparing for a class that I am currently in.

I need help making this problem statement work. Tell me what I need to do and how to go about this. I wantto make it presentable and I was told by one of my peers that this needed a lot of work. Help!

There is a problem in the local school system where I am current employed. That problem is that many of our regular education teachers are not properly trained to handle special education or special need children and the vast majority of teachers feel that special need students should be placed in special eduction classes. Not all special need children need to be placed in a special need classroom all day. Some of these children can be included in the mainstream classroom and taught along side of their peers.

Date of Interview:
Time of Interview:
Length of Interview:

1. Do you think autistic children should be in the mainstream classroom for the entire day?

2. How is the best way to serve autistic children?

3. What are some of the activities you do in a mainstream classroom that includes autistic children easily?

4. What are some of the changes you make to your assignments and/or activities for autistic children?

5.Autism varies in degree for children. How do you work to include all types of autistic children?

I made up the interview questions and guide but it may need help also. my assisgnment is to do the following:

Develop a list of criteria/rubric to evaluate your interviewing skills. Be sure to define and explain each element of your rubric and support your criteria/rubric with appropriate references to our course readings.

Using your rubric, (of course I don't have one) complete a formative self-evaluation for the interview exercise. Please bear in mind that your self-evaluation for this exercise is just as important as your interview performance.

Please submit one document containing the following elements for this assignment:

Research Question
Interview Guide
