ESE accommodations (Believe me, this post is shorter than it looks)

Like most of you, I'm already thinking about next year. I've been teaching ESOL students for the passed two years and I only needed to post ESOL accommodations somewhere in my planbook. I've had it stapled at the beginning.

However, next year I'll have a homeroom (1st grade...YEAH!!!), but now I have to also post the ESE accommodations that I plan on using for those students in my planbook. Does anyone know what those are specifically?

Here are the ESOL accommodations that I have posted in my planbook:

1. Translate key concepts
2. Make an outline
3. Write a summary
4. Highlight important points
5. Use manipulatives
6. Student conducted role-plays
7. Student centered group problem-solving activities
8. Develop vocabulary/definition/example list
9. Add visuals and illustrations
10. Use charts, tables, and graphic organizers
11. Provide “realia”
12. Use short, simple sentences
13. Simplify and standardize vocabulary
14. Change narratives to list form
15. Music, poetry and games
16. Language Experience Approach (LEA)
17. Use simple forms of media
18. Total Physical Response (TPR)


If they are the same I could just label it ESOL/ESE accommodations, but I wanted to make sure that I'm not leaving anything out or if there is something that I cannot use for ESE students.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

I don't know anything about ESOL, but your inclusion students will have IEPs which will have the accommodations they need listed. You can't really come up with an exhaustive list b/c each kid's accommodation plan will be different. Some examples of accommodations you might see on IEPs are:

Presentation:
Provide on audio tape
Provide in large print
Reduce number of items per page or line
Provide a designated reader
Present instructions orally

Response:
Allow for verbal responses
Allow for answers to be dictated to a scribe
Allow the use of a tape recorder to capture responses
Permit responses to be given via computer
Permit answers to be recorded directly into test booklet

Timing:
Allow frequent breaks
Extend allotted time for a test

Setting:
Provide preferential seating
Provide special lighting or acoustics
Provide a space with minimal distractions
Administer a test in small group setting
Administer a test in private room or alternative test site

Test Scheduling
Administer a test in several timed sessions or over several days
Allow subtests to be taken in a different order
Administer a test at a specific time of day

Other
Provide special test preparation
Provide on-task/focusing prompts
Provide any reasonable accommodation that a student needs that does not fit under the existing categories

Oh wow...thanks! I could really use this list. I knew that each student's accommodations are different, but I usually just list them in the front of my planbook for reference.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Teacher379, I figured you knew the information, I was just "thinking out loud" to try to figure out how to go about listing accommodations. I wonder if you could make a copy of the page in the IEP where accommodations are listed and attach it to your planbook?

That would have been fine also, I really didn't think about that...

But could you believe that I found a list in an old portfolio from college?

As soon as I find an answer to my question, I find my own resources that I've been looking for.

But just in case someone else is looking for this list here they are:



ESE Modifications

1. Provide outline prior to lesson
2. Use visual aids/audio materials
3. Use handouts to emphasize major points
4. Write key points of lesson on board
5. Break long presentations into short segments
6. Write assignments on board or paper for student
7. Require fewer correct responses to achieve grade
8. Allow more time for regular assignments/test
9. Reduce length of regular assignments
10. Reduce reading level of assignments
11. Reduce homework assignments
12. Do not grade handwriting
13. Mark correct answers, not mistakes
14. Utilize different types of paper
15. Read written questions, test items and questions aloud
16. Use calculator, computer, reference materials, and manipulative
17. Provide clear visually uncluttered handouts/worksheets
18. Allow open book/note exam
19. Give exam orally
20. Give frequent short quizzes
21. Give take-home test
22. Allow student to dictate answers


Again, thanks for helping me.
