ESE 697 Week 6 Final Paper
Check this A+ tutorial guideline at
Throughout the course, you have been demonstrating your understanding of
differentiation and lesson planning for children with mild and moderate disabilities
through the design of lesson plans in various content areas. For the Final Project, you will
demonstrate competency in planning instruction for students with mild and moderate
disabilities by developing a lesson plan portfolio that you can use and share with other
colleagues, for work interviews, or for personal use.
Your Lesson Plan Portfolio will consist of the five complete, original lesson plans that you
designed throughout this course. Each week, you received feedback from your instructor,
and possibly from your peers, to continuously improve your differentiated lesson plans.
Below there is a description of each part of the portfolio that you will submit this week as
your Final Project.
Part 1: Introduction to your portfolio
Provide a brief introductory paragraph that explains the purpose of your portfolio and the
competency you are demonstrating through your five lesson plans.
Part 2: Lesson plan portfolio
Use the feedback you received each week, along with what you have learned throughout the
course, to revise each of the five lesson plans to ensure each component sufficiently
addresses the required areas (below). Combine the lesson plans into one document to
present your revised five lesson plans that reflect your competency in this area. Remember,
each plan needs to specifically reflect the use of effective strategies for students with
disabilities that are cited within the lesson plan.
The following components are required in each of the five lesson plans:
Lesson title, grade level, subject area
Classroom scenario: Description of the classroom for which you are planning the lesson
plan (grade level, classroom setting, number of students, and include any other pertinent
information about the classroom).
Students with mild/moderate disabilities in the classroom: Describe at least one learner
with a mild/moderate disability that will participate in the lesson. Include the type of
disability, the student’s individualized needs of the student, and any pertinent information
about the student(s).
Common Core State Standards and lesson objective: Provide a specific learning objective
for the lesson and the Common Core State Standard that the lesson plan will address.
Assessment: Describe how you will assess student learning of the lesson objective.
Accommodations or modifications to be provided: Provide a detailed description of the
accommodations you will use throughout the lesson to address the individualized needs of
each student with a disability.
Teaching procedures: Provide a detailed description of the teaching procedures, including
teacher input and modeling, guided practice, independent practice, and closure. This
section must include strategies from the text or peer-reviewed articles related to effective
strategies for teaching students with disabilities.
You must cite your sources to demonstrate your knowledge of effective strategies.
Additionally, the teaching procedures should integrate ways to promote self-determination
into the lesson as well.
Checks for understanding: Throughout the lesson, you will provide several ways that you
will check for understanding to ensure students are grasping pertinent and central
concepts in your lesson.
Reflection/self-determination: This section will include your brief reflection on how
assessment will help inform you of your students’ achievement of the learning objective, as
well as how it will inform your future instructional actions.
You will also reflect on how you will promote self-determination in each of your lesson
plans. Finally, reflect on how the week’s learning contributed to your understanding of the
lesson plan’s development specific to differentiating instruction for students with
Part 3: Reflection
Imagine that you are applying for a job where you need to demonstrate competency in
planning educational experiences for learners with disabilities.
Using your lesson plan portfolio as evidence, write a one- to two-page rationale for how
your portfolio demonstrates your strength and competency in this area. Use specific
examples from your portfolio to justify your rationale.
Part 4: References
Provide a reference page that cites all sources used in the development of your portfolio,
including all sources that were cited in each lesson plan.
