第二个课程计划是John Blackwell在教育网站上的“珍珠”。这是一个7 - 8年级的课程计划。这个教学计划的目的是“促进社会规则的重要性的理解,每个学生自己的个人经历与决策技能,培养欣赏阅读,和帮助学生更好地理解作者的观点和他们试图传达”(布莱克威尔,2012)。这个课程计划是为了满足特殊教育学生的需要而制定的。这一课程计划旨在帮助中学阶段的学生提高阅读理解能力，阅读小说，学习适当的决策技巧(Blackwell,2012)。阅读理解对于学生学习是很重要的，以便能够理解他们正在阅读的内容和他们正在阅读的单词。“没有理解,阅读就是跟随一页纸上的字从左到右而征求他们和页面上的单词没有意义,当人们读许多不同的原因,主要的目标是获得一些理解作者想表达和利用这些信息——无论是事实收集、学习一门新技能,还是游玩。”
The second lesson plan is “The Pearl” by John Blackwell on teachnology.com. This is a lesson plan for grades 7-8. The objective for this lesson plan is to “Facilitate understanding of the importance of rules in society, relate decision-making skills to each students own personal experiences, foster an appreciation for reading, and help students develop an understanding for what the author's point of view and what they are trying to convey” (Blackwell, 2012). This lesson plan is tailored to meet the needs of special education students. This lesson plan was designed to help students in middle school grades to be able to enhance their reading comprehension, read novels, and to learn appropriate decision making skills (Blackwell, 2012). Reading comprehension is important for students to learn in order to be able to understand what is it that they are reading and the words that they are reading. “Without comprehension, reading is simply following words on a page from left to right while sounding them out and the words on the page have no meaning and while people read for many different reasons, the chief goal is to derive some understanding of what the writer is trying to convey and make use of that information – whether for fact gathering, learning a new skill, or for pleasure."
