A teacher who knows her class well, would know whether the material or text would be readily absorbed or that the text or material needs some modifications done to it. A teacher may take some vocabulary words out to bring more focus where explanation of the meaning of each word is concerned. A teacher may feel that the font on the material or text should be enlarged for easier reading. A teacher may want to model ways of taking notes to help students look into revising a lesson. All the changes are made to enable students to absorb, understand, apply, retain and recall the new information when needed. Text adaptation is enabling students to focus only on the extracted essential information from the text. In essence, the literary text or materials are developed to enable text adaptation.
