Adapting Lesson Plans for an Inclusive Classroom. Using one (or more) of the free resources below, write a three- to four-page critique of three lesson plans (one Grade K-5 lesson, one Grade 7-8 lesson, and one high school lesson) in regard to addressing the needs of students with LD or CD. Make sure to include at least one additional resource beyond the above sources for lesson plans. Your critique should address the following elements:
a. Determine the elements of the lesson that would be specifically helpful in addressing the needs of a student with LD or CD.
b. Generate ideas for adaptations that you might make to the lesson to more effectively support students with disabilities. Discuss research-based strategies that could be used to enhance learning in the lesson.
c. Identify potential accommodations, modifications or supplemental services, within the context of the lesson that could support the needs of students with LD or CD.
d. Generate at least five ways that a teacher could leverage learning strategies, social interactions, and behavior supports within the lesson to address student needs.
