Assigned reading for homework, research, and webquests.
Textbooks too dense, hard for dyslexic readers, SPED and ELLs; most students didn't read the textbook even when assigned
Chunking the textbook and using reading guides.
Over 90% of the students read the assigned text on a regular basis and they find it easier to understand. My test scores have gone up 10%. I had an 83% average this year on the cumulative class final in advanced biology!
Science content....short chunked readings, videos, links to websites and questions
Try it as it works! My dyslexic students love the dyslexic font!
