Instructional Ideas

  • Consider assigning an extension project in which learners choose a station that interested them and conduct further research about the disability, as well as ways to support those challenged by the disability
  • Practice going through each of the stations yourself so you are fully prepared to discuss the activities with your students
Classroom Considerations

  • Given the depth of knowledge and experience at each station, it would be best if this activity were performed with support from other adults or instructors at each station
  • Please note that technology use is required at three of the stations
