Differentiated Learning with Paper

My students need the copy paper as I differentiate my lessons for those students that have trouble copying off the board.

My Students

I teach a lot of students with special needs who are integrated with general education students. All students learn differently and work at different speeds. In order to meet the needs of all my students I create two versions of the classwork.

My inner city students are energetic.

They are all great workers when pushed. They are becoming great thinkers. They all have spunk and attitude. They love to talk, some are shy and quiet. They all love my science class! They all love the science fiction book I am reading to them.

My Project

My students will benefit from the copy paper because I have already seen the difference in them. In September, they came in with a "I don't like Science" attitude to now they enjoy and even look forward to Science! I need the copy paper for the continued success in my science class. My science class consists of taking notes off of a PowerPoint, conducting a lab and watching a video all on the same topic. The PowerPoint introduces the students to the topic. The hands on labs reinforce the new material that was learned the day before. They video enhances the topic. All of these require handouts that I create for students to take notes and to complete lab reports. Two versions are always created. The version that is modified for the special needs students has less writing . This version just has students copying key words or phrases. Extra copies of all handouts are also made for those students who frequently lose stuff and are disorganized.

Currently my school has placed a ration on copy paper.

The school is a 6-12 school and the school is only allowing 4 boxes per week. It is Tuesday and the school has already gone through 3 boxes! This makes planning difficult, since all copies for the week need to be completed by mid-week due to the rationing. This type of planning makes it difficult to teach science in the way that works for my students.
