Robert, a 9th grader, is very
popular because of his wonderful sense of humor, his respect for teachers, and
his expertise in military vehicles. Robert also happens to have Spina Bifida,
which confines him to a motorized wheelchair due to his limited mobility and
limb strength. His disability negatively impacts his access to reading
materials because of the motor coordination it takes to hold a book. Robert is
fully included in the general education classroom but struggles to keep up with
grade-level reading and written assignments.
The 9th grade social studies teacher is beginning a history unit specifically
on the Civil War and has asked you to help evaluate the elements of this unit
in regard to Robert’s strengths, areas of need, level of readiness, barriers

and instructional technology to overcome those barriers.

elements, requirements and Robert’s characteristics.
