Response to Lesson Plan

Overall, I liked your lesson plan a lot. I think most students enjoy learning with a partner (with minimal "grownup" involvement) whenever possible. Students with ASD really benefit from this extra opportunity to learn social skills from peers. Students with ASD with whom I have worked struggle to stay on topic, take turns speaking, etc. It seems that, with the right partner, this would be a great chance to reinforce those skills. I like that you included the check list with the lesson plan...Right at the teacher's fingertips! I think the lesson was very appropriate for the students you described.

Something to consider, is the ability for a student with ASD to participate at the level he/she is expected to for this lesson. It is very based on verbal communication, receptive and expressive, which would be very taxing on some students with ASD. In the section "Additional Support" you outline some good interventions if the student is not able to participate fully; I'd like to have all that in mind BEFORE starting the lesson. Setting students up for success is so important. I'd want a clear idea of exactly what support this student would require to be successful, and have it there from the start.

Nice job!

      I really like the way the you gave a detailed description of the setting in the lesson plan. If I were a sub, I would have no question about how to set up for this lesson. I also like the fact that... more
