        Character's Feelings and Events | English Language Arts Strategies for Students with Cognitive Disabilities

        In this self-contained elementary classroom, students work as a group with a teacher to complete an an "Internal States Chart" that identifies events, characters involved, and the feelings of the characters in a text. Students are supported in labeling the feelings with a communication board that offers picture symbols and words for twelve different emotions. The teacher might continue the lesson by having the students change an event in the story and analyze how that change would affect the characters' feelings. This will help students to determine the significant events in the story and the way those events influence characters' feelings and actions. The video demonstrates effective strategies for engaging students with significant cognitive disabilities in literacy instruction.
