Assessments of the Student
Some assessments that were used on Marcus were ATMS practices
Some of the other ways that are being used are pullouts with the interventionist so that they could push him back up to speed so that he could have been ready for the major testing that was coming up
Please add any other problem that you think he could possibly have .

Make up this info
Make this up I am Hispanic also and I worked with students that have felt that there is void in their lives and all it is, is attention from mom. Please make this up but I do know that is one of his issues.

Knowledge of the Student
Background information, Assessments, and Mentor Information
Marcus is a fifth grade Hispanic male whom is struggling academically as well as emotionally.
His academic scores are far below basic in reading as well as in other areas of English Language Arts and mathematics.
His family history is unstable at best with his mother having left him with his stepfather and his father is not a part of his life. His mother comes in and out of his life transiently, but there is abuse in his mothers new household as well as potential issues relating to Marcus not understanding the dynamics between his mothers new relationship which is homosexual in nature. It does not appear that Marcus has anyone in his life in which to truly support him and listen to his feelings which may range from confusion to loneliness to rage.
He oftentimes has difficulty when working with others and seems to be alone and isolate himself much of the time, whether sitting in the corner during class or sitting alone in the cafeteria during lunch or walking alone in the fields.
It appears that Marcus will continue to have difficulty in school with regard to focus, concentration, and social.
