Student: TVI: Date:
IEP Goal: In 36 weeks, given single words or sentences that contain changes between the current English braille code (EBAE) and the new Unified English Braille code (UEB), **** will correctly read and write 20/31 of these changes using UEB on 3 out of 4 data collection days. ______/31
Overview & Purpose:
UEB follows the rules of print. The Strong word contractions “a, and, for, of, the, with” do not touch when they follow one another in a sentence.
Iowa Core: 10 - Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity.
With prompting and support, read prose and poetry of appropriate complexity for grade 1. (RL.1.10)
ECC: Compensatory skills- Braille Literacy
This lesson can be used as a companion lesson with BOP – 1st Grade - Unit 5 –Day 2- Lesson 24- student page 15
Objectives/Purpose: (Specify Skills/Information to be learned)
In this lesson we learn about strong word signs and a new special rule that they follow. You will get to read and write these special contractions.
Review & Engage: (what did you do last lesson that will tie into this one?) Questioning
I want you to name the 5 strong word signs.
What special thing do they get to do when they are in a sentence next to each other to save space.
And, for, of, the, with
Touch – there is no cell between them.
That’s correct, but in UEB, they want to follow the print rules, where there is always space between the words.
(Check for student understanding)
Questioning- include examples and non-examples.
Can you tell me the new rule?
(Describe the independent activity to reinforce this lesson)
Student will read the attached sentences.
Select 5 of the sentences for the student to braille in UEB.
Independent Practice & Application:*
YOU DO IT ALONE
Flash cards using the 5 words (2 words per card) Sort the cards according to UEB and EBAE.
Formative Assessment & Reflection:
Can you tell me the UEB rule to use when you have any two of the following words side by side?, a, and, for, of, the, with
Why do you think they made this change to the braille code?
This is another tool to use:
What are the 3 new things that you learned today
What are the 2 things that were difficult
What is the 1 thing you would like to learn or work on next?
When reading materials in EBAE that contain one of the UEB changes the student has learned, point out the sentence and ask the student to tell you what would be different in UEB. Have the student braille that sentence in UEB.
Print copy of brailled materials.
