Never underestimate the power of Low Tech

Yesterday at the NJCIE Inclusion Conference, I attended a great workshop presented by Paula Kluth. The focus was on literacy and the importance of including all students in the process of reading, regardless of their abilities. Dr. Kluth discussed 2o Ways to Adapt the Read Aloud for students. All of her ideas are low tech. Often when teachers or other school staff members think about supports for reading, they think about high tech tools first. While many high tech supports have many features that are appropriate for some students, I think it is important not to forget about low tech options that may support a student in the area of reading.
