Study Skills for Struggling and Special Needs Students features 122 engaging and reproducible activities, each of which provides 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 using time well, additional units instruct students on reading, spelling, math, and vocabulary support strategies. An included teachers’ guide provides teaching suggestions for using the activities, ideas for extending the activities, and an answer key for each activity, while a CD-ROM assessment tool allows teachers to evaluate students’ use of the skills covered in the book. This CD-ROM, which can be administered an unlimited number of times, is available from Mangrum-Strichart Learning Resources (www.mangrum-strichart.com) for both the Windows and Mac platforms.
