I really enjoyed your lesson plan! I liked the way you used scaffolding in you the before, during and after sections. The teacher first did the assignment to model for the students and worked with them. Then during the assignment the teacher would be there for some assistance but allowed the students to figure the activity out on their own. It's important that we, as teachers, let them know we are there but not allow them to rely too heavily on our support. This is all depending on the severity of the child's disability, of course. And then the teacher will redirect the student with ASD if he/she does not understand even after the activity. I thought the lesson plan was very well laid out and explained so that a substistute teacher could very well come straight in and know what to do. Self-monitoring is also very important and reassuring for students, with or without ASD to feel accomplished and proud of the work they did. That was a very good asset to the lesson plan.

      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

      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... more
