EDSS 555: SDAIE Strategy

SDAIE Strategy
This a a blog about a Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE) that I observed while at my school site. Although it is not within an English classroom it proves to be beneficial in a Math class with students who need more direction.

Graphic Organizer
In an Applied Geometry class I the students were learning about lines. Ms. Bailey started this particular lesson by explaining to them that she realizes some of the definitions are a challenge to remember. She went on to say that there is a graphic organizer that can help them remember those definitions. She asked them to choose two of the following words: collinear, skew lines, coplanar and opposite ray. She used the word “intersecting lines” as an example, to show students how to complete the graphic organizer, which resembles the Frayer Model. There are four boxes surrounding an oval, at the center where the word that is being defined should go. The top left box is the definition in your own words, the top right box where a label or diagram should go, the bottom right box defines the word using symbols, and the bottom left box is where a drawing or a real world picture would go. She provided the students sheets of paper with the graphic organizer in place. She walked around the room to make sure everyone was on task and understood the directions.
