1. Given the information during the PowerPoint example students will complete a PowerPoint at proficient level of 90% accuracy, as assessed by a checklist.


1. In order to make sure each student has a good experience I will make sure I use visual aids along with my instruction throughout this lesson.

2. I will ask questions and encourage students to ask questions throughout instruction.

I will try and include Jason in discussions and responses as much as possible without hurting his confidence level in order to avoid any steps backwards. Jason will be placed within the classroom where he is least distracted and I have his full attention for as long as possible.
