Simple but powerful story introduces educators to an effective inclusion strategy: using students' fascinations to help them learn.
Based on a true story about a young boy with autism. Pedro loved whales above all else. When his new teacher told him to put his toy whale away he was devastated. When the principal saw Pedro crying and crouching under the classroom table she suggested allowing his toy to help him feel safe and to do his best work. Pedro's teacher not only gives him his whale, but also incorporates his special interest into the whole curriculum.
Soon, Pedro's whale is helping all the children learn, as the teacher works whales into math lessons, storytime, simple science experiments, and more! Pedro's whale helps him make friends, too, as the other children start to share his special interest. This simple accommodation is a “win win” solution for all parties involved, child with autism, classmates, teachers, and parents.
An ideal teaching tool, Pedro's Whale will inspire educators to harness their students' natural motivations. Includes a section "How to Use This Book" with activities. 32 pages.
