Project Based Learning
Class Description
The 6
grade general education class, in which I designed this Project-BasedLearning Plan for, consists of 20 students. Of these 20 students, 1 of them has a learningdisability. Learning disability is defined as “a condition that causes significant learning problems or an unexpected underachievement” (Smith 2007). This type of performancerequires a unique, individualized, and often intensive intervention.The environmental design of the 6
grade classroom consists of 4 large rectangletables, which are placed in 2 “rows.” This means that the tables face the front of theclassroom, to make the instructors’ lectures, boards, and technology (computer and TV)easily viewed. There are 5 students at each table.There are minimal stimuli to distract the students in the learning environment.Classroom rules are posted in the front of the classroom as a daily reminder to followthem diligently. Decorations and class work are displayed on the bulletin boards in the back of the classroom, by the teachers’ desk, and the hallway.
