2. After the student has completed the work I will check over it and go over any problems he missed.

D. Independent Practice-

1. After we have completed the worksheet together the student will be given a worksheet packet to complete on his own.
2. I will check the student's progress before he leaves in order to make sure that he is understanding the principles.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1. This student needs a small group setting to meet his needs. I will provide him one on one instruction to ensure his needs are being met.

2. I will then make sure that the student turns in all completed work and puts his homework in the appropriate folder to take home.
7. Evaluation-
1. I will use his completed work to compare it with previous work he has done in class to determine what he has learned.
2. I will use the students work he has done with me to help me determine whether I provided him with the proper instruction he needed. If I did not then I will make sure to modify my future lessons to meet his needs better.
