Common Core requirements include an effort to use grade level material with special education students. Finding materials adapted to students' skill levels can be challenging. Here is a resource for teaching one of the Greek Myths to special ed students.
The story of King Midas is one of the best known stories of Greek mythology. It is a good example for teaching cause-effect, and a good starting point for teaching Greek mythology to special education students.
I have used D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths as my reference, as this is the book I see used most by schools.
This resource includes materials for describing characters (King Midas), illustrating cause and effect (throughout the story) and for sequencing and re-telling the story.
There is also a picture communication board for students who need to use one.
You will find that for some activities there is a color version (for the teacher to use while teaching) and a b/w line-art version for students to use if you prefer not to/cannot make color copies. The Smarty Symbols can be copied on a black copier, and will show shades of grey that most students* can discriminate.
*You may need color for students with cortical vision impairment and other vision issues; although some of them work well with dark greyscale
