Dr. Wendy Miner, Faculty Mentor

For any student, the level of engagement and interest in classroom activities can help achievement. For a special education student the connection to a curriculum can be critical to understanding. This research aims to investigate as to what instructional methods are best to engage and motivate the students of a secondary special education science classroom. Surveys and interviews of the students and teachers of the class are discussed to determine the preferences, attitudes, and connection to a wide variety of instructional methods and laboratory activities used during a chemistry unit.
