Voice of Freedom Literacy Unit for Special Education PRINT and DIGITAL



Includes: 35 pages and 12 google slides
Duration: 1 week
Answer Key: included


Voice of Freedom Fannie Lou Hamer by Carole Boston Weatherford is a great choice for black history month and is for students with autism and special learning needs. This 35 page unit on Voice of Freedom Fannie Lou Hamer is designed for students who have significant disabilities and special learning needs. I was always reading a novel to my students, regardless of their learning level. The lesson of learning to sit while someone is talking is an invaluable skill that is worthwhile teaching.
****There are digital versions of the activities included. There are 12 google slides including a differentiated set and a movie of the book read aloud. SEE THE VIDEO PREVIEW FOR A WALK-THROUGH OF THE SLIDES.

There are so many benefits to reading out loud to your students. You will teach them an invaluable skill of learning to sit still while someone else is talking. Your parents will also LOVE you for not only teaching them this skill of sitting but also for exposing them to age-appropriate material. Plus, you never know which students you will touch with each story you read.
