As a special education classroom all lesson and instruction are in a small group setting or 1:1. Individualized Educational Plans are followed so students’ lessons may vary somewhat. Science, social studies and other core content subjects are also related to the low level classroom teacher lesson plans the students are in based on their grade level.
Students go out to classrooms as their behavior warrants. So each student may not follow these plans. I try to utilize the lower level grade teachers’ lesson plans as much as possible as to ensure core content material is covered.
