Some students truly struggle with multi-step directions. Even students who want nothing more than to do well in school can get lost in a 3- or 4-step set of directions, and in this scenario, teachers can waste valuable class time redirecting students to complete the task. This lesson helps students learn strategies for tackling multi-step directions, while encouraging teachers to set up a routine for delivering multi-step directions that will help set students up for success.
This lesson is appropriate for primary students as well as students in special education, and can be offered during whole-class instruction or small-group instruction. The lesson is scripted, and requires no additional materials.
This is a social-emotional learning (SEL) lesson that may be delivered by school counselors or by classroom teachers. It may be used on it's own, but is part of a larger set of SEL lessons (beginning with Following Directions the First Time: Lesson One). I hope you find this lesson helpful.
