Last week I was hired to take over a middle school self-contained class. My students are in grades 6-8 and their disabilities range from moderate to severe. I have experience with elementary school students but I do not want to make things to babyish for my students. There is a specific program that is used for Reading and Social Studies but the rest of the subjects (Science, Math, Language Arts, and Social Living) are left up to me. Are there any specific things that you do with your students? I was thinking Calendar, Time, and Money lessons with Math and teaching Daily Life Skills for Social Living. Does anyone have any advice? The students are pretty low functioning and I would really like to teach them things that apply to everyday situations.
