Having taught special education for some years, this is still an area close to my teacher heart. Some ways to use Discovery to help this special set of students:
> Closed captioning videos can provide a visual – auditory link to help with reading, whether for general reading or for specific content areas. Follow this path to get help on this : Help > DE streaming > How To > Add closed captioning to any video. Remember also that using the advanced search will allow you to search only closed caption items by checkmarking the appropriate box.
> Create reinforcement/review/reteach lessons using the Assignment Builder in My Builder Tools. Then…
> Add these assignments to a sub-population of your classroom creating a special class for them in the My Classrooms tool. Using these two tools together will allow you to modify assignments more privately.
> A further modifying tool is the Quiz Builder also found in My Builder Tools. Create modified quizzes quickly and easily by using the standard quiz as a starting point. Then adjust number of items, wording of questions, etc to make the quiz appropriate for special ed. students.
> The Ready Zone: continuity of learning resources in the Teacher Center can also be used by helping fill in the learning gaps these students often have.
