Adapted Classics Classroom Set

My students need adapted books of The Odyssey because they read below grade level.

My Students

I teach my students all the core academics, plus social skills, vocational skills, and cooking. My goal is to get them ready to live independently once they leave high school.

I teach all 4 grade levels in high school.

Most of my students are on the Autism Spectrum. We work on the standard curriculum, but at lower levels. The majority of my students will not go to college, unless it is an inclusion program. Most of them will enter vocational training programs.

My Project

I will use the class set of The Odyssey to read with my students. I try to align my curriculum with what other typical high school students learn. I need to have adapted versions so that my students can read and understand the material. Their reading levels usually range between 2nd and 4th grades.

I think that even though most of my students will not continue on to college, learning the classics will help them.

They will learn background knowledge that may assist them in understanding what goes on around them. I also use the novels we read to work on basics like parts of speech and writing.
