Plans for Differentiated Instruction/Accommodations 

Special Education 
Students will be accommodated by;
- Working with a group

- Given extra time to work
- Visual representation
- One-on-one interaction

Potential Challenges/Plan B 
Rarely do lessons go exactly as planned. Think through the challenges you might face in this particular lesson
(e.g., students not understanding, materials not working, the pace being too quick or too slow), and then propose
several “Plan B” scenarios so you can be as prepared as possible.

The assessment will be an open response word problem. Asking students to solve for both lateral surface
area and total surface area. They will also be asking to answer…From today lesson what did you not
understand? In a complete sentence.
