I posted a message in regards to this topic over on the Stage C board before I noticed there is a board for Special Ed.! So I am posting here now too! I am a paraprofessional in a Special Ed. classroom that serves mainly 9th and 10th graders. Does anyone have any suggestions for myself and the teacher I work under? We began using both programs this year and we are still bouncing around trying to fit everything in. Our main area of concern is Independent Reading, how can we make our students more accountable for this area? We have to keep things pretty simple so they aren't overwhelmed but at the same time we want to challenge them so that we keep their interest. If anyone has any suggestions to offer the would be greatly appreciated!
