Why Lesson Planet?
Learners with special needs and learning disabilities explore writing by becoming story editors. The class reads a story together after hearing it once through first. Then, they each examine the pictures from the story and work on paraphrasing its contents. They then become editors tasked with creating a new ending for the story, this can be done with an assistive device or through dictation.
- The lesson provides IEP specific accommodations, which are great to see if you are a new or pre-service special educator
- The teacher reflection also provide insights into what did and did not work for each of her special learners
