The purpose of this study is to examine the use of graphic organizers and their effectiveness as a tool for students with special needs to express their mathematical thinking. I hypothesized that when provided with a sequential writing format, students would be able to more effectively communicate how they solved a constructed response question and the steps needed to do so. My research question was: Will the weekly use of a sequential writing process/graphic organizer improve constructed response scores on the WKCE assessments for students with special needs?
