Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Special education; Language experience approach in education;
This article examined the types of responses students entitled to level 1 and level 2 special education services made in their journals when responding to books read aloud by a special education teacher. The books chosen to be read aloud were from different genres and about varying topics. The responses were also examined to see if the genre read had any impact on the students' responses.
The responses made by the students fell into eight categories and genre did not affect the response pattern when students were responding to books read aloud by the teacher. The students still made more responses in the categories of personal reaction and question/wonder statements regardless of genre. However, the students did make fewer total responses to certain genres. Students entitled to special education services demonstrated they are capable of varying their response types when responding to books read aloud by a special education teacher.
