This first unit in a 6 part Geometry series contains 163 pages and 44 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism who are in middle and high school. This unit addresses the use of some of the most common tools in geometry: a straightedge, a compass, a protractor, a ruler, a T-square, and a geoboard in simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. There are MANY opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on these foundational concepts. This repetition helps students make connections that will enable them to be more successful in the later units. Finally, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

✩✩✩This unit is NOT for students with mild learning challenges and just need more support. This unit is for students who have SIGNIFICANT challenges but are required (and deserve) to access the regular education content.✩✩✩

✩✩✩ Thanks to a suggestion from a buyer, I am now going to be including a detailed lesson plans with lots of suggested activities you can do with the included materials. If you find this helpful, be sure to let me know in the feedback. I may go back and add this to many of my other units.

See the preview for a more detailed look at the contents.

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. 

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future. Plus, it just means a lot to me.
