Dyslexic teen struggles and overcomes in new decodable text: Lit Sick

As we mentioned in the post announcing another new level 1 story Rex, our goal in 2020 is to add at least four new level 1 stories to the collection. Lit Sick is a second step toward that goal. In Lit Sick, a dyslexic teen struggles in literature class and, as the story opens, is becoming depressed about it and is beginning to refuse to go to school. He discusses his feelings and frustration about this class with his mother and with the support of his math teacher develops strategies to overcome this problem. He begins to make plans for the future and imaging the type of work he would enjoy doing.

Many a dyslexic teen struggles with school. Your teen and adult beginner readers will have a lot to say about the feelings of this story’s main character Sam.
