Effective Strategies for Teaching Students with Learning Difficulties
Table of
This book describes and explains a wide variety of techniques for helping students become better writers. The recommended writing strategies are good for all students, but are particularly helpful for children with learning disabilities and other struggling writers. These techniques have been developed and field tested over the past 25 years. The techniques utilize several mnemonic devices for helping struggling writers get their thoughts on paper. They include planning, editing, revising, and other self-regulation strategies. These devices are intended for students ages 8-12. This practical guidebook for teachers is written in clear, accessible language. It includes forms, worksheets, and tables for use in classroom writing exercises. It also includes before-and-after examples of student writing.
