This 5 week unit is designed to help special education students understand that they have a responsibility to be an active part of the learning process and ask for help and tools appropriately when necessary. This unit uses frequent repetition, interactive homework, and role play to help solidify student understanding of the content. Students will learn how to ask for help appropriate through direct instruction of steps as well as opportunities to practice these skills in the classroom. Students will also learn when to ask for help through role-playing and analyzing scenarios.
