What Is Special Education?

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     Mario was dreaming. He dreamed about his snowman. It was very hot in his dream. The snowman was melting.
 
2     "Help me!" the snowman said. "Please help me, Mario. If you can learn to spell ten new words, I won't melt."
 
3     Mario kept trying to learn the words. He worked and worked. He wrote them over and over. He still did not learn them.
 
4     The snowman was getting smaller and smaller.
 
5     "Try harder, Mario. Please try harder," the snowman said.
 
6     Mario tried to learn the words again. He wrote each word five times. He still did not learn all of them.
 
7     The snowman was very small now. It looked like three snowballs. The hat almost covered the snowballs.
 
8     "You are just not trying, Mario," the snowman said. "If you tried harder, you could learn them."
