Teacher-Created Electronic Books: Integrating Technology to Support Readers with Disabilities
Rhodes, Joan A.; Milby, Tammy M.
Reading Teacher, v61 n3 p255-259 Nov 2007
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 holds U.S. schools accountable for the yearly assessment of all students as they progress toward meeting state educational goals. Students with disabilities continue to be a focal point for improving student achievement at the school and district levels. Creating teacher-made electronic books is an effective method of using technology to support students with disabilities. In the elementary classroom, assistive technologies such as electronic books can capture student responses and enhance student retellings of engaging children's literature. This article provides a brief overview of the use of electronic books to improve students' retellings, and specific instructions for creating electronic books that support struggling readers. (Contains 4 figures.)
