What I Do - Lesson Plans

By September 18, 2011

Follow me on:

I had been struggling with how to use the "curriculum engine" created for Clark County School District with the format that my school has been using.  In a conversation with my new principal, she said, "Well of course, IEP's should drive your instruction!."   For three of my students, that is evident.  But a complication is that I have a couple of other students who are reading at or near grade level, and unusual thing in my primarily Hispanic, low income school.  I want to be sure we are giving them the tools they need in order to go to college, even a junior college.

When I wrote about my pleasure at my principal's response to my dilemma on Facebook, a Facebook friend posed the quandry she finds herself in.  In an effort to address her issues, I have written an article on writing for the self-contained classroom.  I'll see how long this template lasts.  The most important characteristic of a good special educator is flexibility, so if it turns out to be more onerous than I though, I'll let you know and modify it.  Hopefully it will offer those of you struggling with the same  quandry some ideas.
