This is a Biography Report/Project for Middle School students. Report has been created, differentiated, and scaffolded to meet the needs of students with disabilities and/or those with low reading/writing levels. Students are asked to research a Famous individual who has a disability. It is expected that students will learn about disabilities, differences, and inclusion through their research. The Project allows for student to explore their own disability and learn that despite being different, they can still be successful.
Students are also asked to create a Powerpoint presentation; allowing students to learn about creating a presentation and presenting it to their peers and staff.
I have used this project with my 6th grade self-contained students. They enjoyed completing the research, as well as having graphic organizers and guidance throughout their process. Students reported that this was one of their favorite assignments of the year. They also enjoyed presenting their projects to Administration.
