Writing Intensive Assignments
I count the lengths of my assignments by:
Strategy Summaries of Evidence Based Practices and Behavioral Intervention
Students will complete 4 strategy summaries of evidence based practices for students with disabilities. They have to complete a draft, will receive feedback, and then have to revise. They will also complete an applied behavioral intervention assignment and will receive feedback on their definitions for problem behavior. They also receive peer feedback. The students complete two projects.

Additional comments regarding assignments:
Writing Intensive Teaching
Method for teaching revision:
Instructor provided feedback
Oral presentation by student, followed by feedback
Other method for teaching revision:
If your writing assignments include group writing, please explain how individual work is assessed:
Peers review the writing with a rubric/checklist for specific feedback.
Explain briefly the nature of the assignment(s) which address(es) a question for which there is more than one acceptable interpretation, explanation, analysis, or evaluation:
The strategies assignment requires students apply course content to add to specific strategies for students with disabilities. Students have to add a self-management component as well as an additional support-needs section. This requires students use creativity and can include multiple types of supports. For the behavior management assignment, students need to also add a support section as well as a generalization and maintenance section. This requires that students think beyond just collecting data and applying a research-based strategy. They also must apply additional things learned to promote the success of the intervention for each student.
Explain how the writing is distributed throughout the semester:
The second 4 weeks include the first strategy assignment and the behavior management plan. The next four weeks include the second strategy assignment and the draft of the paper. The last four weeks include the final paper and preparation for the class presentation.
