Reflection: Students with Disabilities Clouds - Section 5: Evaluate


Providing students with a word bank can seem rather elementary.  Sometimes, however, students with learning challenges can really benefit from seeing key words in front of them.  When asking students to recall information by creating their own sentences, they often forget the words they need to describe the phenomenon.  Providing them with a word bank allows them to recall the newly learned vocabulary and gives them a chance to practice application instead of recollection from memory.  In the EVALUATE student sample you can see how the student used the new words to describe cloud formation.
