Special Needs/Accommodations
• Gifted: 3 students
This grade level consists of 3 students who have been identified as gifted.
These students are fast learners, but are not as motivated as other students.
Accommodations for these students include:
+ Encourage creative expression and thinking by allowing students
to choose how to approach a problem or assignment.
+ Ask students’ higher-level questions that require students to look
into causes, experiences, and facts to draw a conclusion.
• OHI: 1 student
One student is diagnosed as Other Health Impaired. Testing is done constantly
to diagnose the student under a specific Special Disorder. The students’
assignments are all modified. Some assignments are given orally.
• Behavioral: 4 students
Four students have been diagnosed with behavioral disorders. These students
are pulled from the classroom daily for small-group instruction with a special
education teacher.
• Learning: 6 students
6 students have been diagnosed with learning disorders. These students are

d. Specific Entry Skills:

The students have been taking part in a special school-wide reading incentive
program. Those who read a total of 25 books within a certain time period
were invited to take part in an outdoor celebration. The next incentive for
reading 50 books was a field trip, the third incentive for reading 75 books was
another field trip, and the fourth incentive for those students reading 100
books is another big celebration.

e. Learning Styles:
Based on the different activities done in class, the students were observed and
the learning styles have been assessed. The results are as follows*:
Reading it or watching it done: 16
Hearing it: 7
Touching it or doing it: 24
Most of the students in this class are kinesthetic learners. The second most
common type of learner is visual, while only a few students are auditory

f. Motivation – Keller’s ARCS Model:

• Attention – the attention of the learner will be gained by identifying

books that would be of interest to boys.
• Relevance – the relevance is the information learned can be directly
used for any student wishing to find good books to read.
• Confidence – the confidence of the learner will be gained by the
inclusion of a brochure that will guide them to good books for boys to
• Satisfaction – the students will be motivated to read for pleasure.

The topic of this video will be great books for boys to read. Several books
will be introduced and briefly summarized.
