Help me give my students Les Misérables graphic novels to read and enjoy.
I teach high school Special Education History students. It is a fun class that takes average students, with mild to moderate disabilities, such as ADHD and Autism, and gives them extra support while allowing the students to continue to take high school general curriculum classes. These kids give it their all, but struggle in class with the ability to stay on task while remaining engaged in the lesson.
My students are unique individuals with a vast array of potential!
I teach World History. I focus all of our history around the idea of worth of the individual. We make connections from history to current events and highlight the role individuals played in making change happen. My class motto is the quote by Edward Everett Hale, "I am only one, but I am one. I can't do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will." We love History and are excited to be the change we want to see in the world!
The Les Misérables graphic novels will continue to enhance the differentiated instruction classroom that is required in a special education setting. My classroom library is very small and has very few history books that are accessible to low level students. My students respond best to texts that are bright and colorful and illustrate what they are reading. Last year I discovered historical graphic novels. My students absolutely love them and can't wait to read a new one as a class. I took a poll in the class and we decided that Les Misérables would be the next book we would like to read.
With these new books, my students will be able to better understand the French Revolution.
The French Revolution is a long and complicated time in history that has always been a struggle for my students to understand. The students desire to read a version of Victor Hugo's classic will make for the perfect opportunity for whole class participation through a read aloud/acting out of the individual characters. I plan to pair this lesson with worksheets on the different phases of the French Revolution and end the unit by viewing the musical. We are so excited for this study and can't wait to get started!
