Chalk Talk: Examples of Adaptations
Adaptations are modifications made to lesson plans or learning activities to help meet the diverse needs of individual students. In an early childhood lesson on friendship, each student draws a picture of one of his or her friend. Everyone talks about his or her picture and the friend he or she drew, emphasizing answers to the questions, such as what does it mean to be a friend, what do you like about your friend, what has your friend done to make you feel good etc. One adaptation is that the teacher can display many visuals of friends helping each other and working together to illustrate the point that friendships allow society to run smoothly. This will be particularly helpful for children who learn more effectively with visuals or who have hearing impairments. Another example of an adaptation for this lesson is to implement a group aspect, which would be helpful for children who are uncomfortable speaking in front of the whole group.
