Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Home Sweet Home – Community Living Options


This month’s unit focuses on exploring various options of living as independently as possible. Students will learn the importance of learning about different living options in the area.  The stories, articles, and activities will focus on discussing the good and bad associated with living independently.  Students will explore living options while building their reading, math, daily living, grooming, hygiene, and employability skills.                                                                             ***This curriculum program is designed for students with significant disabilities. These are students who have moved through the grades and now require intensive training that will lead to adult living.

***Note Regarding Content Standards: Lessons are identified by Instructional Targets, which align to content standards. Therefore, lessons may be addressed to meet high school course requirements if needed. These instructional targets are the natural extension of the grade level Instructional Targets that are addressed in the Unique Learning System.

Learning Targets: 
I can remember one thing a person should know to help choose a good place to live.
I can decide which living option is best for me.
I can determine which tasks I can do myself, do with help, or can’t do.
I can choose an appropriate response for each roommate problem scenario.
I will find one skill needed to live on my own.
