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."
