Help me give my students an adapted version of The Diary of Anne Frank, an important classic, that will be able to reach my low level readers, or those with attention issues.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
As an inclusion teacher, I work with content teachers in science, history, math, and ELA. The special education students on my team are split into two groups, and they are in classes with general education students. It is my job to help students on IEPs access the curriculum like their grade level peers, with modifications and/or accommodations. The needs of our students vary, but they often require a significant level of support.
The students at our school come from varying cultural, linguistic, and educational backgrounds.
When they arrive here, we would love to be able to provide them exciting learning opportunities they can access, opportunities they find engaging. Many of our students have a history of not enjoying reading and many don't enjoy school at all. This project may be able to help that.
My 8th grade students will be reading The Diary of Anne Frank as part of the curriculum. We have two groups of special education students on my team. Both groups can benefit from these graphic novel versions of the diary, most specifically the struggling readers and those with severe ADHD. This version will pair visual with verbal presentations of a story that students can relate to as young teens.
The Diary of Anne Frank is such a classic, important book to share with youth, and an adapted version will allow all students to focus on the content, rather than struggling with reading.
