The Role of Instructional Planning in Math Instruction for Students with Learning Disabilities
Meyen, Edward; Greer, Diana
Focus on Exceptional Children, v41 n5 p1 Jan 2009
Instructional planning is an essential skill for teaching mathematics to students with learning disabilities and other struggling learners. The authors' frame of reference is based on their experiences in developing and testing mathematic lessons for the Blending Assessment With Instruction Program (BAIP) over a five-year period. The authors stress the view that in addition to possessing content knowledge, teachers must be proficient in translating their knowledge of curriculum standards into detailed instructional plans. Such planning is essential to the alignment of instruction with standards. The remainder of this paper sets forth an approach to instructional planning that evolved from work in the design, development, and testing of over 276 BAIP lessons in mathematics. Because of the extensiveness and detail of the instructional planning model that will be proposed, the authors have decided to share the development and application context that lead to the development and dissemination of the BAIP mathematic lessons. The intent is to provide a rationale for the authors' perspectives that is anchored in a particular set of experiences. A description of the BAIP lesson plan format is also provided. (Contains 1 table and 6 figures.)
