This course is part of the 2015 Nancy McKinley Lecture Series, Aligning Literacy Instruction to Standards for Students with Moderate-to-Severe Disabilities (Including Autism), and is presented in partnership with University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Story-based lessons provide teachers with very powerful strategies for teaching literacy engagement skills. A well-planned story-based lesson allows students to meaningfully experience a story, book chapter, or textbook passage. Planning is the key to getting the most from a story-based lesson.
