Some of you may know that I created a laminated pamphlet on the topic of inclusive schooling and autism. The cards are easy to tuck away in lesson plan books or in desk-top drawers, so many teachers told me that they used them as “cheat sheets” for creating adaptations.
Based on feedback from those who liked the size and portability of the card, I decided to create another one on inclusive literacy instruction.
This time, I got to work with my friend (and co-author of A Land We Can Share), Kelly Chandler Olcott. Some of the topics we address on the card are:
- allowing alternatives to book reports
- making written work workable
- making the most of peer support
- inviting collaborators in literacy instruction
- selecting formal literacy instruction
- designing literacy centers for all
- and more!
To celebrate this new product, I am doing a giveaway contest this week. Just share your favorite inclusive literacy idea for supporting literacy learning in the inclusive classroom on this blog post or on Facebook to enter the drawing. I will give away three laminated cards on Sunday, June 24nd at 5:00 CST.
