Lesson Plan 28: Experiencing Disabilities
Objective:  Students will experience the difficulties of having a learning disability.

Materials:  mirrors, paper, something to read on one sheet of paper

Method of lesson presentation:

1.  Ask students what a learning disability is.  Discuss learning disabilities.

2.  Tell students that this is their chance to feel what it is like to have a learning disability.

3.  Have students work in pairs and give each pair a mirror and the paper to read from.

4.  Show students how to line the paper in front of the mirror.  Tell them to try and read the paper from the mirror.

5.  After a few minutes, ask students to read aloud to the class.

6.  Discuss:  How did it make you feel?  Did it take you longer to read?  Did anyone laugh/correct you?  Did you want to read aloud?  How might you treat people differently now that you know what it's like to have a learning disability?
