Provides engaging and age-appropriate reading material for adolescents and young adults who do not read conventionally. The 18 photo-illustrated stories intended to be read with a partner- a same-age peer who is reading at grade level, a teacher or a parent.
The work-themed stories feature a simple, consistent structure using repetitive phrases and sentences to help students focus on the text. Photos correspond closely to the stories' content. The primary characters are people with disabilities shown in actual work settings: a medical facility, a garden center, and a fast food restaurant. An activity page encourages readers to talk about their own experiences using a review and discuss format.
A comprehensive Instructor's Guide is included as a PDF on the CD. The Guide describes the research-based framework and features additional activity pages.
