I am a second year teacher in a fairly rural county in Virginia. I teach students with intellectual disabilities, so I need to adapt the general curriculum content for my class. I still want them to have some of the same feel as the general education classes.
In English, I love working with small groups and doing centers. In math, I find it easiest if I teach one skill but allow the class to practice it in a number of different ways, each tailored to what they need academically. In science, I love previewing a skill and then doing a number of experiments and activities to help make a concept more concrete. In history, it's a lot of whole group instruction. I do very little tests, and only spelling quizzes. I assess my students through worksheets, and other methods of formal and informal means.
Yet to be added
I was homeschooled in K-4; public schooled 5-12, and attended Liberty University for my bachelors degree in Special Education.
As I create resources for my class, I will upload them here in case it will benefit anyone else. Also, so that I cannot lose my files... even if my computer goes to IT for help. I do teach all four content areas (English/Language Arts, Math, Science, and History/Social Science), but I also teach life skills and independent living skills as well as cooking. Some of those materials may also find their way here. :)
