      I am sure there are videos of teachers with resource students, but I imagine they aren't identified. I think that really great teachers teach the same lessons to all students, as all students deserve to work toward grade level Common Core standards regardless of variability. With students with learning disabilities, the key is scaffolding. Giving all students access to challenging curriculum is a great way to begin to close the achievement gap. For more on how to scaffold instruction, check out Universal Design for Learning. http://www.cast.org/udl/

      Good luck!
