Direct Instruction Lesson Plan
During my Special Education methods block, I created the following direct instruction lesson plan for a hypothetical classroom. The classroom is very diverse and includes a student with special needs who is fully included. Direct instruction has been a research proven method of delivering instruction to students who have special needs. Even though this lesson was not taught in a classroom, I have used direct instruction models throughout my placements. The model of teacher directed, guided practice, and individual practice has really proven effective as I plan and conduct lessons.
