  • When we talk about planning for students sometimes teachers think that all students need to learn all of the curriculum. However ,we know that in the assessed areas, that those test items are drawn from something called the assessment limits. This is what all students should learn as part of the curriculum. For some learners this might be all that they learn and focus on. When we think about what most students should know this might be the breadth of the curriculum as it currently exists in that this includes the assessment limits as well as additional good to learn information. While we might expose kids to all of the curriculum we still need to remember to focus on the assessment limits in terms if repetition and automaticity. For some students who already are familiar with or who have mastered the curriculum, this is an opportunity to compact the curriculum and offer an opportunity to expand and engage in a very targeted upward extension. This is for students who want to know more and dig deeper into a subject.As we transition to common core, this might look different. We know that there will be a summative assessment, likely some ongoing formative assessment, a speaking and listening assessment and a portfolio based assessment. All students will still need to focus on what will be expected in the upcoming assessments. However there will be a lot of opportunity for students to problem solve, dig deeper and to master a variety of content in Common Core State Standards.
  • This is an example of looking at the supplementary aids and services of an entire class (the other forms are used for individual students, this one looks at all the students in a class)

    9. 9. Subject: IEP Goals: Language Arts Math Science Lunch Follow multi- step directions ** Use visual cues when introducing new tasks Follow routines within activities (e.g., “Get your folder and come to the table”) Follow directions/rules when playing math games Follow steps to complete experiment. Complete lunch routines (e.g.; “First eat your sandwich and then you can have a cookie;” “Pack up your stuff and go line up”) Match printed words to pictures Match word to appropriate picture during read-aloud/ guided reading Match labels to pictures on graphs and charts Match labels to objects or pictures being studied Count up to 10 objects accurately Help teacher distribute materials (“Get 5 books from the shelf and give one to each person”) Use manipulatives to solve addition and subtraction problems (peer or adult sets up problem, Jake counts items) Count items being used in experiments (“How many rock samples are there?”) Count items (“How many different things do you have in your lunchbox?” “How many goldfish would you like?”) Viktor’s Activity Analysis

Routine Planning Matrix When: What students are expected to do: The teacher is lecturing Sit in seat Listen Take notes Answer questions Students are working in cooperative groups Perform assigned role Take turns Listen Respect opinions of others Students are doing individual seat work Work in assigned area Complete activity Ask for help if needed Supports: Seat near front of room Partner to take notes Copy of notes Communication device Visual of assigned tasks Review of cooperative group rules prior to starting Communication device Choice of area in which to work “Help” card What the student will do: Sit in seat Listen Answer one question Perform one role (same over time) Wait for turn until a student prompts him Listen Work in area Complete modified activity Use “help” card to request assistance

Student Descriptions: Ivan, Tatyana, Andrei • What are critical skills that the student needs to learn? • Where are opportunities to learn these skills across the day? • What are the benefits for Ivan in participating in the general education classroom? • What classroom activities will need to be adapted for the student participate in general education classes? One thing we learned about student planning?
