Lesson 1 of Nemeth in a Box

Series Navigation<< Nemeth in a Box for Middle School Students: IntroductionLesson 2: Nemeth in a Box for Middle School Students >>

Welcome to Lesson 1! We know your student is going to enjoy the activities in this lesson.

What the Student Needs:

The student needs to have a braille copy of the Lesson 1 file and a braillewriter or notetaker to record their answers. 

If you are using Duxbury to prepare the student files, before opening any BRF files in Duxbury, go into the Global menu. Select “Formatted Braille Importer” and then check the box for “Read formatted braille without interpretation” at the top of the window. This will ensure that nothing is changed when opening the BRF files. This handout walks you through the steps.

What the Facilitator Needs:

The facilitator needs the Facilitator Guide for Lesson 1

Using Lesson 1 with the Student:

We recommend that before you begin Lesson 1 you watch the video of how to conduct “Which One Doesn’t Belong?” prepared by Sara Larkin.
