Adaptations for Special Needs Students

As with all Event-Based Science books, Outbreak! has been designed to challenge students, to encourage them to rise to the demands of real-world problems. But what do you do if you have students who are already challenged? And what do you do if these students are mainstreamed into your regular classes?

The following adaptations were used successfully with groups of emotionally disturbed adolescents at the middle school level. The academic abilities of these ED students ranged from gifted and talented to severely learning disabled.

The worksheets found on the links below were developed by Special Education teacher, Jennie Discepolo (Mark Twain School, Rockville, Maryland) for use with your Special Needs Students.
