Summary "Teaching literacy to middle school and high school students with significant disabilities can prove challenging when available reading materials don't match students' reading levels and interests. This accessible, step-by-step guide shows teachers how to match students with appropriate texts and develop inventive themed units that encourage literacy learning." "The authors demonstrate how teachers can build whole units around a selected text by creating hands-on activities that engage multiple senses. This valuable resource includes sample activities and lesson plans and ideas for adapting general education materials. Perfect for special education and inclusive classrooms, this resource features everything teachers need to motivate students with disabilities and help them develop literacy skills!"--BOOK JACKET.
