High School Teenage Boys

Hi
I recently started a new job at a private high school for learning disabled teenage boys. The previous 10 years I worked for a catholic school that has teenage developmental disability (mentally challenged) students. Can anyone suggest some ideas to get these students more involved. I've tried mad libs, graphic novels, catch phrase, reading comp. books -- any help would greatly be appreciated.
sincerely
