Parallel and Perpendicular Lines Unit for Special Education PRINT and DIGITAL


Total Pages 147 pages plus 34 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 3 Weeks


This parallel and perpendicular lines unit is part of a 6-part Geometry series containing almost 150 pages and 34 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 characteristics, how to identify, and how to draw parallel and perpendicular lines in a 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 parallel and perpendicular lines.


Finally, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated into 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.
