When the COVID pandemic closed school doors and sent students home for eLearning, teachers of students with complex needs were faced with exceptional challenges. Teachers needed to keep instruction going while handling an incredible array of unique student needs. It was hard! But with the right curriculum resources, the path becomes more clear. With Readtopia curriculum resources delivered online, teachers have the materials at hand to handle the specific challenges facing students with complex needs—including supports for caregivers. Here you’ll find information about Readtopia program components, ideas, and tips around educating students with complex needs through in-class and eLearning environments.
Each Thematic Unit is easily delivered in-person or via distance learning. Lessons can be uploaded to any LMS or printed out for easy use by students and parents.
Thematic units contains 6-12 weeks worth of instructional materials covering everything from social-emotional learning, reading instruction, to topic areas like states of matter and the Underground Railroad. Each Thematic Unit is easily deliverable in-person or via distance learning. Lessons can be emailed, uploaded to Google Classroom (or any LMS), and printed out for students and parents.
Resources within each thematic unit include a companion narrative book presented in graphic novel format (at seven levels), video, informational text and worksheets (at four skill levels), phonics/word study instruction, vocabulary, and math lessons. Students are assessed several times during each Thematic Unit and data is easily collected and compared across units.
Readtopia has an extensive Curriculum Guide to support teachers as they learn this comprehensive curriculum. Once you open the Curriculum Guide, the list of resources is on the left hand side.
All materials are designed to meet the unique needs of students with complex needs from late elementary through transition, and many adult education programs use Readtopia as the foundation of their programming.
The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act passed into law in late December 2020 includes almost four times the amount of funding than originally provided through the CARES Act. This funding is intended to facilitate continuity of learning and address the learning loss caused by extended eLearning/Remote Learning and Blended learning situations.
