Diversity Reading Units for Special Ed Students

Help me give my students an opportunity to support diversity in reading units for Latino and black communities. Students who need a copy of the book will be able to utilize the novels as distance learning.

My Students

High school students will focus on historical fiction text to support their reading comprehension skills. The use of a class set of novel books will allow all students to have a novel at home to read during distance learning. A few students in the region do not have access to the internet, so the limited resources of the novel will delay some critical thinking skills. The first unit of focus for English course will be on equality and social justice, mainly in the Latino and black communities.

My Project

The novels include diversity of cultures with some historical context. "The Watsons go to Birmingham - 1963" novel by Christopher Paul Curtis will allow students a modified text to support independent reading at their level. The novel is a great example for students to reflect and synthesis historical fiction in experiences during the Civil Rights movement. The poems within "The House on Mango Street" by Sandra Cisneros will expose students to the Latino community and develop critical reading skills by analyzing poems by Cisneros. These fictional texts will support equality and diversity during distance learning.
