Product Description
This is intended as a worksheet, a write and wipe activity, or as a visual aid for students with autism or other special needs to demonstrate basic comprehension of the book Martin's Big Words. 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 with a variety of modes. For this reason the response choices for each question are widely contrasted (e.g. Pocahontas vs Rosa Parks).

This book is an excellent choice for the secondary 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. I have a pet peeve regarding activities related to Dr. King that are dumbed down or cartoonish. 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.
