Below is a lesson plan, catered to a student who may be suffering with ADHD. I think it's important for these students to feel included and a part of the class. Students suffering with ADHD may have a hard time staying focused and on task, they may also become fidgety if they have to sit for too long. To accommodate this, I've modified a lesson during a literature unit to have the students work with partners or in groups. The ADHD student will work specifically with other students that are great at staying on topic and remaining focused. Vocabulary will also be discussed and the ADHD student will get the chance to move around when a scribe is needed to write words and definitions on the board. This will also help them retain what is being taught and be included in the discussion.
