Accommodation Issues

The "Bird's Eye View" lesson is highly visual in nature, requiring students to look at and analyze complex presentations. For students who have low vision or who are blind, this lesson may be problematic. We suggest the use of pipe cleaners or similar tactile materials to create the lines, 2-dimensional shapes and 3-dimensional shapes discussed throughout this lesson. In addition, it may be useful for visually disabled students to work with a sighted peer in approaching this lesson; the latter may well have some creative approaches towards explaining the lesson.
