Materials for Teachers of Middle School Students with Dyslexia

Created by IBEX Mission E/PO Last updated 6/17/2014

This is a list of materials developed by the IBEX E/PO program for teachers of middle school students with dyslexia. Seven strategy guides were developed to compliment the Great Explorations in Math and Science (GEMS) Space Science Sequence curriculum developed with partial funds from the IBEX missions and led by Lawrence Hall of Science in its development. Many of the pedagogical techniques used in the curriculum sequence benefit a wide range of learners, including students with dyslexia. The strategy guides provide teachers of middle school students with a reading strategy and supplemental resources, background information on that strategy, connections to standards, classroom implementation techniques, tips for utilizing this strategy with students with dyslexia, and a two–page reading based on a particular space science concept.
