As a Special Education teacher, it is our job to differentiate the materials for the lesson of the day. Often times, there is no documentation of our differentiation in the lesson plan or for ourselves of what documents go with each lesson if we are in an ICT setting.
I have created a lesson plan coversheet that lists
- the objectives of the lesson
-the standards being assessed
-the accommodations created
-technology being used
-any changes in the seating arrangement
-prior knowledge being assessed
-what background knowledge we are building on
-the agenda for the day
-materials for the lesson
-how the students are being assessed
-the essential questions that will be answered by the end of the lesson
All of this information allows for you to record student growth as well as document your formal and informal assessments used throughout the lesson.
This is a Microsoft Word document that can be adjusted as needed.
