My students need the adapted version of Frankenstein to read during in class readings.
Do you remember the first time you read a classic such as Frankenstein and felt completely lost because the language was just WAY over your head? Well, my special education students face that everyday. If we do not receive the adapted version of Frankenstein, they will continue to feel that way.
My students are in the advanced 10th grade literacy class for higher-level special education and low-level general education students.
They are all over the spectrum as far as capabilities but they all admit that classics intimidate them. We, as teachers, feel that they should not feel limited and would like to present the classics such as Frankenstein to our students to broaden their horizons and reading interests. Our school is an extremely diverse urban school that houses every type of student.
Our resources are extremely limited due to budget cuts but the students should not feel the impact. My special education students have worked hard and dedicated themselves to their education enough to rise to one of the least restrictive environments (collaborative team teaching model.) Now, they must be challenged with a literary masterpiece such as Frankenstein. However, the original text is over the comprehension level of my students but they still deserve the right to read the stories that other 10th graders are reading. The adapted version is the perfect solution but only ONE copy that is tattered is available. Through this masterpiece, my students will be able to learn about science, technology, make real life connections with social issues, and apply many of the literary elements they have come to learn such as allusion, inference, figurative language, and so on. Finally, this will prepare them for more complicated classics that will surely follow in college.
At our school, we believe every child regardless of background or disability can go to college.
Therefore, we provide diverse and rigorous curriculum so all of our students can read rich literature, understand it, and learn about themselves through the experience.
