Special Education Teacher in the making

Mon Feb 05, 2018 12:50 AM

Hello everyone, 
I am currently in school studying to become a Special Education teacher. I have learned different ways to accommodate students and modify lessons. What other tips and tricks can I use in the classroom to help exceptional learners participate and learn science?

Hi Stafani--

Not sure what grade level you're teaching, but at the secondary level I partnered with a Special Education teacher to learn more about modifying written material for students with special needs who were in my classes. We found out that many of these procedures (such as chunking material or color coding)were effective with other students, too.
