A project about an adapted unit of instructions in science. A unit on plants is examined from the second-grade Full Option Science System (FOSS). During the course of the project, existing accommodation and modification of the FOSS unit are adjusted and then modified in order to create the necessary accommodations for students with special needs from 3rd to 5th grade special day classes (SDC). The adapted unit of study and a survey were sent to special education teachers with in Norwalk Unified School District for review and validation of the suggested curriculum modifications.
Using the feedback from the adapted unit of study and the responses from the survey the project assessed the unit to determine if it was properly adapted for the targeted students and if those accommodations are useful for the targeted population. The paper ends with recommendations on how to properly adapt science lessons in SDC.
