General Accommodations  give more time  give short, concise, linear instructions, one task at a time  give handout of whiteboard work  materials should be well-structured / clear / linear with logical, predictable progression  involve a minimum of jumping about (eg backwards and forwards, from box A to box B etc)
  5. 5.  have sentences on single lines where possible  keep new language to a minimum  provide review and consolidation  avoid too much contrastive word input (eg their / there / they’re )  avoid tasks designed to ‘catch out’ or ‘test’  be multi-sensory and multi-media where possible  have larger, dyslexic-friendly font / larger spacing / darker background:

Now, do you have all the necessary information to write a fully informed article? You can use the following file to order your ideas: SXCDtVk1gnU/edit (Remember to make a copy in your drive, change its name when you open it) On the next slide you will find links to explore the topic more thoroughly and complete your notes. Remember you need to include: what bullying is, its characteristics and consequences. Explore the links freely. Making a good and clear article requires the use of precise vocabulary.
