"Prioritizing" is a mini lesson from the Daily Living Skills series of workbooks featuring transition skills designed for mild-to-moderately affected special needs high school students, but appropriate for any young person wanting independent living skills.
The "Prioritizing" mini lesson consists of 10 pages on the definition of time management, the 1-2-3 prioritizing system and 20-minute priority pie managing tool. This freebie will allow you to sample the style and pacing of the entire Daily Living Skills program.
Daily Living Skills meets federal mandates for transition services for special needs teens and Indicator 13 requirements.
Written on a high third/low fourth grade level, each unit is filled with airy pages and lots of bullet-point facts and information so that reluctant readers can use the program independently. Yet, while supporting their ability level, this program also honors the humor and sensibilities of teens and young adults. Each 2-4 page lesson has a quiz or activity for students to check comprehension and each is focused on helping students determine their needs and desires for the program.
While the books may be used in a "buy-today, use-today" method, a Teacher's Manual is also available on this site for teachers who prefer this support. The manual contains tips for implementation of the program and program management along with written ITP goals for each workbook, a class grading system for each unit and notes (as needed) for each workbook.
Finally, a Power Point Presentation is also provided here (free) which will allow you to introduce the program to students, parents and/or administrators in a quick, yet comprehensive manner.
All units have a lesson/quiz format to constantly check for comprehension, a complete grading sheet, answer key, parent verification letters to document compliance with federal standards and airy, third-grade reading level pages.
Making Meals and Cleaning House both include video modeling of important life skills in an accessible, clear format. Videos need to be downloaded separately as the files are too large to bundle. However, all videos are free on this website, so you can obtain the entire bundle and all its component parts for this one low price.
"Prioritizing" is offered here free, but if you like a full preview the program, download another free unit—Doing the Laundry—which is also available on this site.
