I know some will read this, and feel a bit reluctant to consider teaching a novel with a popular movie easily available for all students to watch and replace with reading, but I think if administered correctly, these could be really great picks and an important list to browse. I have a student this year with extreme dyslexia and mental processing disorders. It is an enormous challenge for her to comprehend what she is reading, so if I can find a film that stays true to the novel, it is a great way to help her understand the written content. We can go slow, compare scenes, and even compare mediums. If she is already familiar with the plot, reading the words might be a bit easier and open her up to reading more books and being comfortable with them. I hope it works, and will keep everyone posted. Has anyone ever tried this method with your SPED kids before? If so, I’d love to know how it went, or any ideas and suggestions you may have.
