Readtopia — Experiential Learning for SpED Classrooms
A decade in the making, Readtopia is a comprehensive reading and learning curriculum for middle and high school students who take the alternate assessment. Hear from Readtopia’s creators and two districts that are implementing it.
The Readtopia team traveled the world to bring stories, sights and sounds into classrooms. Experiential video, graphic novels (at six levels) and informational text give students rich experiences across reading, ELA, social studies and science. Experience Readtopia for yourself! Descend 1,000 feet in a submarine, hear from Sacagawea, fly in a WWII fighter plane, then peek into classrooms and see the impact on students!
