Increase E-Learning Engagement for students in Special Education

Help me give my students the opportunity to read highly engaging books that will keep their minds off of the horrible news.

My Students

My incredibly diverse group of students all are reading below grade level and all receive special education services.

Not being able to work with them on their reading and writing each day in the classroom due to e-learning has been so difficult!

My middle schoolers love to read and discuss.

My Project

My diverse group of students are all reading below grade level and all have IEPs where they receive special education services. My goal is to increase engagement in their e-learning with these high interest books. I also want them to watch the news less and fall in love with a good book while they are home.

Illinois students will not be going back to school this school year, so I will deliver these books to each one of my students homes safely!

I want to bring some peace and smiles to their faces during this difficult time. With these highly engaging books they will have an escape from the stress. This gift will also brighten their day!
