Author(s): Stephen S. Strichart / Charles T. Mangrum, II
Study Skills for Learning Disabled and Struggling Students: Grades 6-12 features 122 engaging and reproducible activities, each providing a unique opportunity for active learning and practice that encourages student success in the classroom. Teaching struggling and special needs students to use study skills and strategies effectively is a vital step in transforming these students into accomplished and independent learners-and this workbook offers a comprehensive and hands-on look at an array of time-tested approaches and innovative tactics for learning, retention, and analysis.
In addition to the units that cover specific study skills, such as taking notes, recalling information, and effectively using time, additional units instruct students on reading, spelling, math, and vocabulary support strategies.
Features of the Fourth Edition:
Comprehensive coverage of student study skills, ranging from preparing for and taking tests to using reference sources and finding main ideas in reading assignments, allows struggling students to improve their learning strategies in all aspects and areas of study.
An emphasis on active student involvement in all 122 detailed activities requires active student participation and written responses, keeping students focused and engaged in the material.
A versatile structure allows each activity to be used either as a consumable or reproducible resource, while the text itself can easily be used as a curriculum for study skills classes or as a Response to Intervention (RTI).
An online teacher's guide provides ideas for implementing and extending the activities in the classroom and provides a complete set of answer keys.
