 Curriculum Barrier Case Study 

Robert, a 9th grader, is very popular because of his wonderful sense of humor, his respect for teachers, and his expertise in military vehicles. Robert also happens to have Spina Bifida, which confines him to a motorized wheelchair due to his limited mobility and limb strength. His disability negatively impacts his access to reading materials because of the motor coordination it takes to hold a book. Robert is fully included in the general education classroom but struggles to keep up with grade-level reading and written assignments. 

The 9th grade social studies teacher is beginning a history unit specifically on the Civil War and has asked you to help evaluate the elements of this unit in regard to Robert’s strengths, areas of need, level of readiness, barriers that will impact his learning, as well as differentiated instruction strategies and instructional technology to overcome those barriers. 

Your peer, the 9th grade social studies teacher, has provided you with the unit elements, requirements and Robert’s characteristics.

DISCUSSION QUESTION: Using this Case Study information and past discussions you have had with this teacher:

  4. Provide additional webpages, journal articles, and videos that the teacher can also use for future reference (cited in APA formatting).


Guided Response: Reply to two peers taking the role of the 9th grade social studies teacher. Use the suggestions made by your peers to create a mini lesson including alignment with the Common Core State Standards (Links to an external site.); a one-day lesson objective, and a description of the activity in which the whole class will participate; any integrated technology; and how you will assess student learning.
