MEville to WEville is the first researched-based literacy curriculum developed specifically for students with disabilities in the moderate to severe range. Designed to build a classroom community that promotes a sense of belonging, each unit offers students a new and different perspective on themselves, their families, and their school. Lessons include strategies and practices taught in general education literacy classrooms, so students are engaging in similar types of literacy activities as their peers presented at their level of understanding.



Product Overview

 

MEville to WEville facilitates literacy learning success by teaching within the context of familiar themes and building upon skills and concepts introduced in the previous unit. Lessons include step-by-step instructions for integrating reading, writing, augmentative communication, and listening skills into daily instructional activities that can be taught in one session or spread across several sessions.

In-Context Life Lessons

As students construct a classroom community, they gain a sense of belonging and new perspectives on themselves, their families, and their school.

                  • Children became more socially responsive
