Reflection: Diverse Entry Points The Atmosphere - Section 4: Elaborate


It is often a challenge for students to write "if, then" statements.  This skill requires them to make connections between two things and discuss the effect of that connection.  For a student with special needs, this can be quite difficult.  To provide them with an entry into the conversation, necessary supports were put into place.  I gave them a chart to connect the "if" to the "then" and put it into a language that they would understand.  See the ELABORATE student sample for clarity.
