My Students

My students are ages 3-21 and attend my adapted environmental science class once a week. There are also special education students from our neighboring school who come over once a week. In my class, the students learn how to take care of pets, manage gardens, and access and care for their environment. My program addresses South Carolina life science and earth science standards which are adapted to my students' specific needs.

"Those you think cannot - CAN!" Our school motto describes my students perfectly.

With a creative approach, my students are able to care for their environment!

My Project

The students who attend my adapted environmental science class are mostly nonverbal. The students use speech devices, such as Step-by-Steps to communicate their answers. These devices are also used to record directions for the students to follow during small group work.

This project will give my scientists a voice!

The Step-by-Steps will be used for the students to answer comprehension questions, follow recorded directions, and communicate with peers and teachers. These devices will give my scientists the opportunity to more fully participate in class and will expand their learning experience. The Step-by-Steps are a crucial part of our program, and by obtaining two more, I can have one device in each of our three groups.
