  • Students with Listening and Speaking Disabilities Students with listening difficulties (e.g., receptive language deficits) Students with speaking difficulties (e.g., expressive language deficits) Students with listening and speaking difficulties What are signs of the difficulty? Take more time to process; seem disengaged; trouble following directions; confuse words that sound similar; difficulty with complex ideas Do not voluntarily enter into classroom discussions; seems disengaged; when called on, provides abbreviated responses Have difficulties with both processing and producing spoken language In what ways do students exhibit difficulties during daily instruction? Learning challenge is directly related to a specific cognitive ability (e.g., short-term memory issues, vocabulary deficit, cognitive overload; attention) May demonstrate understanding but it is not reflected in verbal or written responses Have processing difficulties, problems related to regulating attention and short- term memory, and difficulty developing complex responses 9

  • 10.2.3 Lesson 1, Application Question You are adapting this lesson for your class. Which recommendations would you implement in this lesson to support listening skill development for your students with disabilities? (Consider the UDL Framework and recommendations on slide 15-17) Which listening scaffolds would you implement to enhance other skill development for your students with disabilities? (Consider your ideas on slide 11) 18

  • Multiple Means of Action and Expression Literary Analysis through Interactive Stations In six groups, students will spend five minutes at each of the three stations, and then rotate and repeat until each student has completed each of the three station assignments. Stations are as follows: Wall of Silence. Students will each contribute one quote from the text to a large paper hanging on the wall. Quotes will be related to silence, and students will have them prepared from a prior activity. Each student will then respond to at least one of the other quotes by asking a question, making a connection, or simply writing their thoughts. Power Tableau. As a group, students will come up with a way to represent the dynamics of power and silence in No Name Woman by embodying them in a frozen, silent tableau. Circle Discussion. Students will be seated in a circle. Each will have a sheet for notes. They will respond to the question How would No Name Woman be different if characters were more open with each other? 22
