    My team was recently informed that all ASD classes are being required to teach a 90 minute reading block. This is standard for gen ed but has only recently been applied to ASD. I obviously need to get some curriculum training, but I am curious if any other SpEd teachers are required to do this. Any tips?

    I'm required to do one. Mine starts with a daily story where we do some kind of comprehension skill. Then we break into groups. I do a leveled-intervention series and the paras work the centers. We actually get a lot done and I can actually complete 3 different levels of Treasures Triumphs.

    "Reading is Thinking." Don't forget that reading isn't just about seeing the actual words on the page - there are tons of strategies, projects, and connections to be made. I think with a little practice you will find there are tons of things that will fill a 90 minute block.
