My Students

Our structured learning students have a combination of disabilities that require extensive communication and/or physical and mobility supports in order to meaningfully participate in the academic setting. Our students taking, or would be highly likely to require, the Alternate Texas Assessment in all content areas. Although our students in the structured learning classroom frequently have some degree of physical or neurological disability, a student should not be assigned to a structured learning classroom for these disabilities only. Our students in our structured learning classroom have pronounced cognitive involvement that requires them to be educated exclusively in the extended standards and to be supported with intense and sustained resources throughout the day.

My Project

Cooking is an excellent way to include a variety of students in a task at each of their own levels and to work on a variety of academic and functional like skills. We like it as a task for students of all ages, but it becomes increasingly important as students get older and need to learn skills to learn skills for living on their own or with support. Cooking with simply machines gives our students the opportunity to work on reading skills, listening skills (e.g., one student can read the recipe and one can complete the steps), sequencing, nutrition, meal planning, math for measuring and adjusting recipes, use a variety of simple kitchen tools, and on and on. It also is very motivating to our students because typically they get to eat what they make. A couple of things we think about while cooking in the classroom, in addition to what tools you have available to the job, is how to make sure that each student is an active participant in the lesson. Too many times kitchen equipment turns out to be too complicated for what the students’ skills are and teachers end up doing the majority of cooking while students watch. Clearly this was not the intention as it’s not functional for the student’s learning to simply watch someone else cook, since most of our students learn best from doing. Simple machines can help alleviate student frustration in the kitchen.
