I am an educational assistant in a Special Education class in my school. The range of students are sixth through eighth grades. The students I work with are reading/writing on a second to Fourth grade level. My job is to try to improve that by finding ways to make it easy to understand. I need lower level reading and writing resources visual and audio to help enhance the learning process for these students. These students have potential for success and with your help with resources the students will not be drop-outs but have the confidence to continue on with their education and graduate with their peers. I have seen how they react when they receive a new book to read that is like the books that the other students are reading except they are getting to listen to it on CD/tapeand follow along in the book. They feel like a "normal" child. The cost of this project is $446.09 including shipping.
