I teach a special education resource classroom in a Title I Turnaround school. My students have a wide range of abilities and needs. All of my students are working significantly below grade level. We all share a love for learning in our classroom.
All of my 5th grade students get their own copy of the graphic novel "El Deafo" by Cece Bell. They will also receive a notebook to write their own story inspired by the graphic novel.
El Deafo tells the story of a girl who embraces her disability and learns to advocate for herself, a character all my students can relate to.
This book will help them with their transition to middle school, give us a common book to read during this period of distance learning, and inspire them to write their own book.
