Brighton is piloting a program called ACES this year. ACES stands for Alternative Competency-Based Education for Scholars. These students all receive sub-separate settings for core content classes as stated in their IEPs. The goal of the program is to support students who have not always felt successful in schools see progress through competencies and benchmarks. Instead of receiving letter grades, they earn benchmarks towards larger competencies.
In the small group setting, all students are able to receive the individual attention and supports they need in order to see growth.
Many of my students struggle with executive functioning, or organization. They currently have binders that hold all in class assignments and notes. I want to continue to support their organization by helping them separate out notes and materials from different lessons. Binder dividers will allow students to quickly find the materials they need. A tab for quizzes means all the past quizzes don't get lost. These are a great way for them to study!
Colored paper will be used as a visual queue to separate lessons, but also important documents.
If Unit 1 is blue then their weekly Do Now Sheet will be blue, as well as their table of contents and any reference sheets for that chapter.
