Locate or create a lesson plan in the Grade level of Elementary; in the "Writing" department or "Reading" and describe the skill level and deficits of three students; one with a Learning Disability, one with an Emotional or Behavioral Disorder and one with Mental Retardation. Provide suggested solutions for accommodating each student when implementing the selected lesson plan. Then, create the criteria for using a curriculum based measurement to assess each student's mastery of the skill presented in your lesson plan. You will also explain why it is necessary to make these accommodations using your knowledge of the foundations of special education. You must cite 5 references.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 25, 2018, 5:24 am ad1c9bdddf
Let me outline for you how to go about this process, and then I will attach a couple of example lesson plans that refer to accommodations for different students.
First, locate a lesson plan. Do you have a target grade range? Since there are a plethora of teacher websites sharing lesson plans and it sounds like its okay for you to locate rather than create the lesson plan, I'd recommend using one from a site like readwritethink.org These tend to be detailed with specific student objectives, activities and assessment ideas, so its a good place to get started.
Next, think about your target age group/grade level and some of the disabilities you've learned about. With this range of disabilities presented in your assignment, it is likely you will have a student that has difficulty with each step of the learning/assessment process, so plan adaptations for each phase: 1 - Comprehension of information/skills presented, 2 - Recall of the information/skills presented, 3 - Demonstration of learning. Perhaps the LD student is dyslexic and so reading is a particularly ...
Ideas to create a lesson plan in the elementary literacy domain are generated. The solution fully describes the skill level and deficits of three students.
Differentiated Instruction in a Lesson Plan
Select a postsecondary lesson plan, an instructional module/training plan, or one segment of a workshop or seminar agenda. Using your selected postsecondary lesson plan or segment of a seminar or workshop, recommend two modifications for each of the four ways of differentiating instruction that were discussed in class. These include the following.
a. Differentiating the content to be learned
b. Varying or altering the instructional strategies used to teach the required content
c. Varying the end product used to demonstrate mastery of the required content
d. Varying or altering the environment to accommodate varied learning styles
Include a discussion of how you think each recommended modification will facilitate and engage adult learners.
