Product Description
These 'wh' questions require students with autism and/or intellectual impairment to do a little basic reasoning and inference formation related to the events in the book Martin's Big Words. The focus of many of the questions is to improve understanding of multi-meaning words and non-literal language at a very basic level.

The student circles the picture that represents the correct answer, points to the correct answer, and/or uses the pictures and written responses to support their spoken response. I have many students whose typical spoken responses are entirely jargon or echolalia, who can use these supports to produce an actual, meaningful, spoken response to questions about stories. It's amazing to see them show what they know.

The academic level is elementary school, the content is appropriate for elementary through high school. The questions are very basic, however, and are intended for intellectually impaired students in the life skills classroom who are learning to communicate basic comprehension using a variety of modes.

This book is an excellent choice for the sendary life skills population, with or without this worksheet by the way, as it is age appropriate for secondary students, but is written at about the 3.4 grade level. The art is quite beautiful, and it treats Dr. King's story with a great deal of dignity. As you know, if you work with high school aged life skill students, they can be a difficult group to "shop" for. Pictures are from Boardmaker Studio.

Check out my other MLK related product for basic comprehension/recall questions for students who are still operating at a more basic level of understanding.
