Keeping interest up
Fri Jun 5, 2015 09:48

I also had/have questions about how to keep our learners with ASD interested in what we are working on. CAR and CROWD are great, evidence-based ways to make this happen when doing shared reading. I also think that it can be accomplished by letting them gain a love for books and helping them connect with the stories. Hopefully, letting books be an integral part of every day and a fun part of free time will lead to this love. As far as connecting with the stories, using CROWD questions and something I learned about today, the PEER strategy, is a good way to help your students interact with both other people and the characters of the story.

      I think that a challenge with any student, along with students with ASD, is keeping them focused and motivated. We as teacher have to switch up what we are doing to try to get students interested. I... more
