Reflection: Students with Disabilities Regional Characteristics: Researching Using Nonfiction Texts - Section 1: Introduction


In order to support students with reading disabilities, I assign them the region that we live in so that they can use their personal experience and background knowledge to support them while they are reading the nonfiction texts.

I also work with them as a small group so that I can guide their reading and support them in taking notes. Later, they will be representing their region in a small group of students who are learning from them. I am trying to give them enough information to support them and make them feel successful when they are sharing with other students. 

I lead the small group by eliciting information from them and challenging them to find it in the text when they are not sure. I also ask them to plan their notes or sentences before writing it down so that they are writing information in their own words and are more prepared to share information with others.
