Instructional objective(s): Students are able to recognize the different disabilities and how the people who have them are treated and to combat discrimination.

Assessment: (WI Teacher Standard #8)  I will assess the students on their understanding of the needs and lives of people with disabilities through the brainstorming that we do as well as by reading their skits about what they can do to help.

Materials Needed: (WI Teacher Standard #3)     Students in groups of 4-5 Whiteboard to Record thoughts. Paper to record thoughts/pencils NoteCards

Time Needed: 1 class period Procedures: : (WI Teacher Standard #7)  Introduction: Today will be a review of the disabilities unit that you have been working on for the past few weeks. I know that you have been working on PSA’s. I would like to start off by hearing about what some of you did for your PSA. This will help us jump into what we are going to be doing today. Who would like to share with me what you did?

Steps for instruction: (Specify time allotments.) 1) After the students share a few ideas, Start to compile a list of brainstorming idea of

what we can do as individuals and as a community to help people who have disabilities, or others who discriminate those people. 5-10 min. 2) Have each group nominate a student to come to the front of class to choose a disability from a hat to focus on. Explain that in your groups, they are to create a skit that deals with somebody having a disability in a situation where there must choose how to treat this person. It could also be a situation where they must choose how to deal with a person who is acting in an inappropriate manner. 10 min. 3) Explain that these skits are to be neatly written and that they are to be appropriate. 4) Group work 10-15 5) Each group (if time allows) will act out their skits in front of the class explaining what they chose and why.  Strategies for students requiring additional assistance: (WI Teacher Standard # 3) While grouping students, attention will be made to make sure that students who may need special help is placed with a group who they will work better with. Closure: As a ticket out the door (if time permits), each student will fill out a note card about 1 thing that they have learned about either the unit on disabilities or while working in their group today.
