make the page look
visually appealing.
They must describe
shapes geometrically.

want to write
separate
pieces of
paper. They
arrange these
pieces of
paper on their
desks to

## EXAMPLE: Teachers write

several biographies of
historians on their
websites to demonstrate
how to insert pictures
(portraits of the
historians).

words. This
way, they
can keep
these terms
in their
mind as
they drive,

1. Physical Science
EXAMPLE: Students
create columns on
their website to
compare and contrast

they also have
differences that can
be described and
classified

Differentiation
Learning Disabilities
- EEOs
Physical Disabilities

## If a student has a motor

disability and is unable to
successfully use a
computer to create a
website, the teacher could
help the student create
their page with the
students direction. For
example, the teacher
could move the mouse
while the student tells
them where to move it.
Students who are
lots of flexibility in
their website and can
make it as complex as
they choose. They can
choose to make
multiple tabs and use
as many visual effects
as they deem
necessary.

Other
Reflection: ePortfolios, or online websites, are a great tool to use in the classroom. They allow the teacher to keep tabs on what
each student is learning, and how each one is progressing throughout the year. Online websites also provide a resource for
parents and other teachers to see what your class is doing each day. In this progressing world of technology, it is important to
equip students with knowledge that will help them excel in their future career. Learning how to effectively create a website,

especially while learning grade-appropriate content at the same time, is something that will greatly benefit all students. I can
definitely see myself using ePortfolios in my future classroom because it is great way to make lessons more engaging and hands
on.
