Disabilities and Special Education

A guide on using library and other sources to do research and coursework on disabilities in the context of special education.

Where to find Lesson Plans

There are many places where you can find lesson plans. Keep in mind that as the teacher it is your responsibility to make the lesson your own, adapt it your state's curriculum standard. Each classroom has different needs. The following are some selected sources of lesson plans:



  • ERIC accessible through our Research Databases Page, see below for a printable handout about using ERIC


  • The CMC has many resources for teachers. Here are some places in the CMC where you would be able to find ideas for lesson plans

      * The Teacher's Editions of textbooks

      * Activity, Unit Plan and Lesson Guides (Search the CMC's catalog by keyword in the library's online catalog and then select "Hagedorn Hall--Curriculum Materials Center" as your location)

      * The CMC has curricula available for all subject areas, which often includes lesson plans
