This book is excellent! Though I have personally used this book for science & social studies, and not traditional "reading", I have found it very useful. The book is tailored for young students, but it can be used for multiple age groups, and with diverse or special need learners with some creativity. With white-out and a photocopier, the templates provided in the book can be used for graphic organizers and/or as the basis for multi-subject project builds. Ex: Science - I used the 'Book Train' template as a 7th grade biology learning project about cellular transport processes (osmosis, diffusion, etc.). Students built separate 'Cell Transport Trains' representing each type of cellular transport, with 'train cars' representing the vital facts for each cell process.
I am a special education teacher of 7th & 8th grade students (science mainly). I have had this book for about two months, and though it is aimed at a much younger age group than I teach, I have been able to use the templates in assorted projects, activities or note-organizers for my students' varied levels & abilities.
This book has helped diversify the activities, labs & projects that I can do in my room and allows for easier planning.
