I am teaching a diploma-track, senior English class with students with learning disabilities. A few of my students still comprehend at the 4th-5th grade levels and struggle with high school level vocabulary. Does anyone have ideas for age-appropriate reading and vocabulary instruction that will support my students without insulting them?
