Reflection: Students with Disabilities Dark Day in the Deep Sea: Day Two of Five Getting Wet! - Section 7: Diving in to Chapters Two and Three


One challenge I face every year is meeting the needs of all readers within my classroom.  I find that this year, my shared text are more challenging than ever because they were selected to meet the rigor of text complexity of the Common Core State Standards.  To help my lower readers be successful with text that is above their independent and instructional levels, I preview a lot of vocabulary with them, and provide recordings.  I find that making my own recordings allows me to go at a slower pace for students to follow along.
