Help me give my students opportunities to read informational texts about current events.
Our students attend a therapeutic public day school. The school is for grades 1-12, and we have 225 students. Each student has been diagnosed with an emotional disability. The students need both academic instruction and support from the teachers and staff to manage their fears, anger, frustration, and sadness. The students also struggle with the English language as well as poverty.
One of the defining characteristics of a student with an emotional disability is their inability to learn despite the fact that they have no cognitive disability.
Our students struggle with learning. To help make the curriculum accessible, each student has an Individual Education Program.
The school uses a behavior system where the students can follow how they are doing in each class. At our school, we have five core values: be here, be safe, be honest, care for self and others, let go and move on, and commit to a goal. Students create goals for themselves, usually surrounding emotions or success at school and track their progress toward that goal.
These materials will make a difference in my students being able to access information about today's modern world. Informative texts will expose our students to interesting articles about what is going on in the world today. Reading these articles will challenge students to think critically as well as make valid arguments. Students will be encouraged to apply what they have learned in school, and see how it relates to the world on a larger scale. These articles will be introduced during classes to keep learning fresh while simultaneously engaging the students interest. Learning outcomes will be measured by how well our students can cite evidence from the article while articulating their thoughts and opinions.
