Yes we do accept purchase orders. When ordering any activity with a purchase order, you will need to go through the normal checkout process and choose your payment method as “purchase order.” Then you will need to fax in the purchase order to 1-888-482-3210. All orders will show tax until a tax exempt form is faxed in to SpecialEdSimplified. We will then remove the taxes and invoice your school.
The set up created by SpecialEdSimplified is to be used as a guide. If the teacher sees that several students do not understand some of the content presented, go back and repeat the lesson. Since the lessons build upon each other, it is important for the students to understand each step of the way before moving on.
Any unit can be used for any grade level, if the teacher believes that it is appropriate content for their student body. Some middle school students may be working at a higher level than others and therefore need more challenging materials than their peers. The materials are designed for a certain grade band due to federal standards but can be used as determined by the teacher.
No. All materials are in a PDF format. Your computer does need to have an Adobe Reader. This is a free download at http://get.adobe.com/reader/.
Some of the units do have prerequisite skills. Each teacher will need to determine what additional work, if any, his or her students need to complete the lesson.
Errorless learning is a teaching method used for acquisition of new skills. The teacher delivers the question(s) and then immediately prompts the correct response and praises the student. The same question may then be asked again, so the student can attempt to give the correct answer. If the student answers correctly, much praise and reinforcement is given. The teacher can then move on. If the student begins to answer incorrectly, the teacher will then prompt again. The teacher will then usually move on to other objectives but will return to the missed objective to try for an independent response.
