Planned Supports IEP Students: Based on specifics of the childs IEP each child will get a different type of modification for this lesson.
Some examples of modifications will be; having the LOs and daily plan on the board and verbally telling the students
what they will be doing, printing modified graphic organizers for the different levels of learners, giving students who
need it extra time for completing the graphic organizer and the exit ticket, reading the graphic organizer and exit
ticket to struggling readers, modeling to the students how to fill out the graphic organizer and exit ticket, walking
around classroom to help students with questions they have.

504 Plans: Based on specifics of the childs 504 plan each child will get a different type of modification for this lesson.
Some examples of modifications will be; having the LOs and daily plan on the board and verbally telling the students
what they will be doing, printing modified graphic organizers for the different levels of learners, giving students who
need it extra time for completing the graphic organizer and the exit ticket, reading the graphic organizer and exit
ticket to struggling readers, modeling to the students how to fill out the graphic organizer and exit ticket, walking
around classroom to help students with questions they have.

ELL Students: By having a PowerPoint that displays the information and having a graphic organizer for the students
to fill out, this is providing students with several different visual supports. The graphic organizer also breaks down
the material and into small chunks to help the students. The students are also able to work in small groups which
will allow ELL students a chance to work with other students that can help them answer questions they may have.
The students in their group can also help the student fill out their graphic organizer and share with them their
answers and how they go to their answer. Also by having the activity student-centered the teacher will be able to
walk around to each of the groups and check in with each student to see if they need any additional instruction.

Gifted/Talented: Since the students will be grouped together these students will intentionally be split amongst the
groups. In their groups these students will be asked to take a leading role and to facilitate the discussion amongst the
group. This will give the student a chance to hear their peers questions and concerns and help them come to a better
understanding of how to comprehend the material. By teaching and helping the other students these students will be

engaging in a much deeper way of thinking and applying their knowledge.

Struggling Students: By discussing with the class in the opening about what the different elements are struggling
students will get more review over the topics they have learned about. By having the students share with the class
their answers to the opening questions the struggling students will be able to hear one of their peers express how
they understand the topic. Another way that struggling students will receive extra support and by being able to work
with their classmates on the graphic organizer. By working in groups of 3-4 the students will get a chance to ask
their peers any questions they may have and hear their peers thinking process on how they understand the material.
Also by having the activity student-centered the teacher will be able to walk around to each of the groups and check
in with each student to see if they need any additional instruction.
