In this self-contained high school classroom, the teacher passes out event cards from a previously read story to each student. The teachers checks for understanding by guiding the students through the correct order of the story and then seeks out the correct event card from the students. The teacher then places the event cards on the board in the correct order to retell or recall the story events. The students are actively engaged as they look at their event card and determine if they have the next story event. The video demonstrates effective strategies for engaging students with significant cognitive disabilities in literacy instruction.
