Hit key ELA standards through the priceless gift of literature
Has a friend ever given you a book and said, “You HAVE to read this?” Sharing the feeling of being completely immersed in a spellbinding story is one of the greatest gifts we can give to one another. Yet too often that gift has remained out of reach for unique learners … until now!
Great Expectations for every reader
Teach 12 of the world’s greatest novels and plays to your unique learners! Inspire Classics, an online add-on for Unique Learning System, provides immersive, equitable access to groundbreaking literature for students and standards-based instruction to fully support comprehension. Teachers and service providers have long asked for higher-level content and Inspire Classics delivers, giving every student the the ability to connect to the literature that’s being taught to their peers in general education while also covering ELA course requirements and state standards.
Adapted texts put classic literature within reach
Give every middle and high school reader access to timeless plays and novels through the decodable text presented in two different versions: adapted text or symbol-supported. The adapted text version keeps the essence and integrity of the original while the symbol-supported version uses SymbolStix—the world’s most dependable communication tools—to introduce an eager new audience to the world’s greatest literature.
Teaching support targets ELA standards
Ensure that every learner gets the most out of each novel and play with full lesson plans that cover key ELA standards for comprehension, vocabulary, inferencing, main idea and details, author’s purpose, evaluating and analyzing texts, and determining the theme or central idea.
Differentiate to four levels
Meet every learner right where they are! Comprehension questions for every chapter and act, and all end‑of‑book activities, are differentiated to four levels. Levels 1–3 are based on alternate standards while Level 4 is based on general education standards.
Build critical skills
Text-only and symbol supported vocabulary activities are great for building skills, and teachers can easily connect with students wherever they learn with included communication boards.
Boost student performance through data and reporting
Data from Inspire Classics feeds right into Student Daily Performance, not only giving service providers accurate feedback for adjusting instruction but also documenting daily work completed for easy reporting on compliance with standards-based IEP goals.
