Disabilities Studies for Teachers – Lesson Plans and Resources

Disabilities Studies for Teachers.



All of the lesson plans are organized according to units corresponding to topics and themes in the history of disability in America. The lesson plans can be used either individually or as a unit. Each lesson plan contains the following elements:

* Grades.

* Subject(s).

* Overview (this provides a brief summary of the lesson plan).

* Standards (all standards are adapted from Curriculum Standards for Social Studies: Expectations of Excellence by the National Council for the Social Studies or Standards of the English Language Arts by the International Reading Association & National Council of Teachers of English).

* Objectives.

* Questions to Consider.

* Resources and Materials (these include links to historical source materials and resources as well as essays written specifically for this project).

Note: for external web sites, we have provided links to specific documents or sections of documents. The links will take you directly to the documents or selected pages or paragraphs. Teachers will need to instruct students which pages or paragraphs should be read. These are identified in the plans.

* Activities and Procedures (these include assignments and exercises that can be assigned individually or as a group). Teachers also are encouraged to consult the document “Differentiated Instruction” that provides ideas on how the lesson plans can be adapted to meet diverse learning needs.
