Small group description:
There are three students in this group who are in fifth grade. One student has a physical impairment with limited use of his hands, one student has a learning disability in written expression, and one student has a learning disability in reading fluency and comprehension. Further, due to these limitations, each student has a fairly short attention span.

a. Is the objective of the mini-lesson clear and is the activity clearly aligned to Common Core State Standards? What are your suggestions in this area?
b. Does the strategy used in this mini-lesson effectively teach the concepts to be learned? Do you have suggestions for any alternative strategies?
c. What further accommodations or modifications would you use in this lesson and why?
d. Do you have any suggestions for using assistive technology in this mini-lesson to assist the learner in accessing the content or environment?
