Cross-curricular lesson plan and rationale | Instructional and Transitional Planning for Students with Mild to Moderate

Imagine you are the classroom teacher for the following students:

  • Three students with specific learning disabilities in the area of reading
  • One student who has been diagnosed with ASD
  • Two students who have emotional and behavioral disorders that affect their academics in all areas
  • Two students with mild intellectual disabilities
  • One student who is speech and language impaired and is struggling with reading
  • One student who was retained and is repeating fifth grade
  • One new student whose records have not yet arrived, but who reports that this year is his second time in fifth grade

All of your students are decoding and comprehending at a second to third grade reading level. All attend general education classes for at least part of the day. Ten of the 11 students show an interest in science and nonfiction texts, while one female student adores princesses and detests all the topics the other students enjoy.

Review Appendix B of the Common Core Standards and select a fifth grade exemplar informational text focused on science.

Using the “COE Lesson Plan Template,” create a cross-curricular science and ELA lesson plan designed to meet the diverse needs of the students in your class. The lesson should align to fifth grade science and ELA standards. When designing the lesson, formulate an outcome that encompasses both of the selected standards and identify how you will assess the outcome. On the lesson plan, the following should be clearly identified:

  • Fifth grade exemplar informational text that is focused on science and is the subject of the lesson
  • Common Core Standard or other state standards specific to science and ELA
  • High and/or low-tech assistive technology that can be utilized during instruction or as part of the lesson’s summative assessment to enhance language development and communication skills

In the “Rationale/Reflections” section of the “COE Lesson Plan Template,” write a 250-500 word rationale that addresses the following:

  • Explain how you selected the standards and brought them together to formulate the lesson outcome.
  • Explain your instructional choices by discussing how the lesson helps students develop skills in both science and ELA and helps them work on mastering the identified standards.
  • Justify the formative and summative assessments you will use in the lesson by explaining how they assess the lesson outcome.
  • Explain how you will provide students with disabilities feedback on their formative assessments to help them prepare for summative assessments related to the lesson.
