The student Success Plan supports the inclusion of all students
in general education classes and activities. As previously described,
the success plan lists each students strengths, interests,
family concerns, priority skills upon which to focus instruction
and supports needed for success. The instructional team can use
the plans to obtain an overall picture of the strengths and needs
of the class as a whole, which is extremely helpful when designing
learning activities. For example, if it is known that three students
need supports with reading, when reading is required during an activity
you can plan accordingly. As activities are developed to address
students strengths and needs more students will be successful.
Some students will require very systematic and detailed planning
to be successfully included in class activities. Students who have
substantial needs should have some form of an Activity Inclusion
Plan to insure that everyone knows how to support them. Activity
inclusion plans are mini-lesson plans which summarize the skills
the student will learn and/or practice during an activity, required
academic and social supports, individualized materials and the person
responsible for implementing the plan. A student may need an activity
inclusion plan for a single activity, a few activities, or every
activity across the school day. As the school year progresses, the
students plans should be up-dated to reflect changes in activities,
location of activities, persons responsible, and skills addressed.
When developing an activity inclusion plan, the teacher of the
activity should be involved in the planning process. For example,
if the team is discussing a plan for art class, the art teacher
should be at the meeting and involved in developing the plan. Typically
students who require extensive planning have significant learning
or behavioral challenges and are eligible for special education.
The IEP team for students in special education should be involved
in the development of their activity inclusion plans.
The Supportive Classroom curriculum includes a process, forms and
procedures for developing activity inclusion plans for those students
who need them to be successful.
