LA Reciprocal Communication: Students will develop, apply, and adapt reciprocal communication skills. Objectives: Students will be able to: Understand and appreciate persons with disabilities by reading, discussing, and writing about them.

What kinds of activities go on at summer camp? What is the role of a camp counselor? What is the role of a camper?

2 Today we will be getting ready to read a novel, The Acorn People, by Ron Jones. This is a true story about the experience of a group of children with severe disabilities at a summer camp. The story is told from the perspective one of the camp counselors. Emphasize to students the importance of being respectful during this discussion and throughout the entire unit. Display Day One text (first paragraph) from The Acorn People on the screen/smartboard. Inform students that they will be reading silently as you read aloud. Ask students to imagine that they are a camper, camp counselor, or parent in this story. Read the text aloud. After reading the text, ask students to share their mental images, thoughts, feelings, questions, etc. When questions arise, encourage other students to help answer those questions. Follow up questions: What do you think about the author s choice of words in Day One? If you were to imagine a camp for children with disabilities, what do you think it would be like? Have you ever seen a physically disabled stranger? If so, what was your reaction and why do you think you responded that way? Learning Activities 1. Understanding Disabilities Use the Understanding Disabilities PowerPoint to guide this discussion Explain the difference between disability and handicap, and explain why the author uses the word handicap incorrectly (by today s standards) Heart Activity In the literature section of their notebooks, students will close their eyes and draw a heart, write their name, and solve an equation (oral instructions). Students will then, with the opposite hand that they usually use, do these 3 things again. Discuss the experience. What types of disabilities were demonstrated in this activity? 2. Picture Book Analysis Distribute picture books about children and adults with disabilities (one book for each student in the group). Ask students to work in their small groups to review the books and answer the following four questions about each book given to their group. Each student should write down the following four answers about each book, to be turned in at the end of this activity. 1. What is the title of the Book? 2. Who is the author of the Book? 3. What did you learn about having a disability? 4. What was the main point of the book you read? Each group will select one book to report on to the entire class. Each group will also select one student to report to the class about the class. The teacher will ask follow-up questions and guide the whole-class discussion. Provision for special needs: Provisions for students with special needs will be made based on students IEPs. Co-teacher will assist in assigning students to appropriate small groups, in terms of academic and social needs.

3 Closure: In their journals or notebooks, students will write a paragraph about an experience in which they met someone who had a disability. How did you react to him or her? What was your first impression? Did your first impression change? Why or why not? (Teacher may need to explain the concept of first impressions. ) References: Jones, Ron. (1976). The Acorn People.
