Abstract:
This paper attempts to answer the question of how to help students receiving special education services achieve success in the general education science classroom. Literature was reviewed and one group of students with special needs was focused on for proposing modification of evidence-based practices to help them succeed throughout one lesson in a science classroom. While the results proposed are completely hypothetical, the practices and desired results are based upon evidence and previous research.
