Goal

We want to purchase educational science DVDs to supplement our curriculum for our students with intellectual disabilities.  

 

What will be done with my students

There are many obstacles to learning that our students encounter. Working with our students to understand complex science concepts is challenging indeed, as some of these concepts are more difficult to represent with manipulatives. Most of these science concepts require visual supports. We are seeking additional opportunities to enhance our science curriculum to include more realistic videos.  

 

Benefits to my students

This grant will provide us materials to teach some complex science concepts that are difficult to grasp with only textbooks. These educational DVDs will have a positive change in our classroom by cultivating a culture of high interest educational and visual opportunities to actively engage our students in complex science concepts.  

 

Describe the Students

Our students are served within a self-contained MMI middle school classroom. All of our students have an intellectual disability and we have students that have characteristics on the autistic spectrum, physical disabilities, speech and language impairments, and fine/gross motor deficits. Our students are working on functional academic skills within a life skills curriculum in order to obtain more independent living skills.  

 

Budget Narrative

The budget includes the purchase of 14 DVDs and associated shipping costs.
