Are you familiar with the award-winning film, Far From Home, by Phillip Borsos? Buy or rent the film to use in your special education upper elementary classroom, paired with the enclosed "script." which is written at approximately 3rd grade level: short sentences and mostly in simple past tense. The story is written in 13 short chapters to match the actions of the film. For my students who are not easily motivated, this strategy allows them to visualize and comprehend printed text, maybe for the first time.
