Publisher's Summary:
This resource provides a comprehensive curriculum for education professionals working with students with dyslexia and dysgraphia.The book contains a comprehensive four part curriculum that can be implemented during a school year to provide specialized group instruction for students with dyslexia in grades 4 and above in reading (Word Detectives), writing (Mark Twain), and integrating reading and writing in science content areas (John Muir) and in language arts (linguistics) and social studies (cultural anthropology) (Sequoyah). It would be used as a tier 2 resource by a special education teacher or reading specialists. It's unique in its coverage of multiple subject areas and in the solid research that supports it.Ginger used the units that form this book in a research study looking at effective ways to teach students with dyslexia and dysgraphia. The study showed that the students showed great improvement in their ability to read and write after using the lessons. The units focus on what Ginger calls hope stories - stories about people who overcome adversity to become successful (Sherlock Holmes, Mark Twain, John Muir, and Sequoyah). It focuses on students in grades 4 through 6.
