Promising Practices in Supporting Student Development of Self-Determination Skills, 6 Dec 2011 [cached]
Frank Roder Teacher, Marchman Technical Education Center, Pasco County, Florida
Today we are pleased to have Robert Aguis, Sheila Gritz, Frank Roder, and Matt Boselli as our featured speakers.
For the past 23 years, Frank Roder has been a teacher in the state of Florida. His primary teaching area has been exceptional student education. He has been employed in Pasco County since 1980 as a special ed teacher and behavioral specialist. As an advocate for students and educators in exceptional student education, Mr. Roder has served on local and state-level committees in the field. He currently co-chairs the Florida Education Association's ESE Committee and ESE Caucus. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Mr. Roder has been a trainer for the district in the areas of verbal diffusion, crisis management, disability awareness, self-determination, and IEP development. He is especially proud of his role as one of the developers of the Standing Up For Me self-determination curriculum which helps ESE students take a more active role in determining educational decisions.
At this point, I'm going to turn it over to Mr. Roder.
MR. RODER: Hello, everybody. In my school, Marchman Technical Education Center, I work with middle school students who are classified as severely emotionally disturbed.
Mr. Roder's confidence building in Mathew's ability to self-advocate for himself was a remarkable achievement.
MR. BOSELLI: Building a relationship with Mr. Roder.
MR. RODER: Okay, what kinds of things have you learned?
MR. RODER: And so, what were you feeling after your Transitional Individualized Education Program meeting?
MR. RODER: And what were some of the things you wanted?
MR. RODER: Okay, and why do you think this is important to teach this in the school system?
MR. RODER: Okay.
There is a greater involvement, as Mr. Roder stated, from the students with their involvement in their IEP.
As Mr. Roder stated in the letter-writing campaign to the district that came through me first, the students really did talk to each other about what behavior they expected and what goals and outcomes they expected as well.
There was an example where at the end of the day I'm standing outside, you know, in the parking lot and I wait until buses leave our campus and the car riders as they leave the campus and the bus driver rolls up to me and was having a problem with one of Mr. Roder's students. And so I boarded the bus and the bus driver was very adamant about taking the student off the bus and we know how bus drivers can be. I went to the back of the bus and I talked to the student and merely mentioned Mr. Roder's name and I mentioned a couple of cues that I thought would help him just kind of calm down a little bit, and got him back in the right direction. Well, he did sit down, he was calm, I was able to work with the bus driver in order for the bus driver to take him home and from that point on, we didn't have any problems.
MR. RODER: One of the activities I do with my students is have them actually list down the people they would like to invite to their conference and then we kind of go over, you know, why they want to invite that person or go from there and then I send that list of people they wanted to invite home to the parents for their review and if the parents are in agreement, the student's in agreement, we have a lot of different community members come in.

If we weren't doing this , nobody would be doing this , says Frank Roder , a 17-year resident of Southeast Seminole Heights.
Their ragtag patrols feature two-way radios , flashlights , video cameras and pet dogs.A 72-year-old grandmother packs a pistol for protection.
Some ride in a van or SUV , flashing a spotlight on license plates and videotaping the johns who shop for sex along this stretch of old Florida highway.
Others walk their dogs on the cracked sidewalks past bus stops and liquor stores.
One told us , 'We don't want any trouble , just tell us where we can go ' says Roder.
There seem to be fewer prostitutes since the patrols began , but many have moved only a few blocks.Others keep a low profile.
The group features a dozen walkers , including Roder , 48 , a founder of the Southeast Seminole Heights Civic Association.
Roder fears as long as prostitutes continue working Nebraska , the neighborhood won't reach its potential.
It's not a victimless crime , says Roder , a behavior specialist at Marchman Technical Education Center in New Port Richey.
If we have to march every week , we'll do it , Roder says.I'm here and I'm staying..
