Strategy Instruction for Middle and Secondary Students with Mild Disabilities
Creating Independent Learners



April 2013 | 304 pages | Corwin
Teach your students learning strategies that will last a lifetime!

The pressure is on special and general education teachers alike. If we're to ensure that adolescents with mild disabilities achieve the very same gains as their peers, we must first teach them how to learn. Here's a one-stop guide for getting started, pairing the very best instructional methods with assessments and IEP goals so all students can be independent learners.

Driven by research, this indispensible resource features:

Evidence-based strategies for teaching vocabulary, reading, written language, math, and science, as well as study skills, textbook skills, and self-regulation

Clear presentation that describes strategies in context

Informal assessments for every content area or skill addressed

Case studies that link assessment results, IEP goals, and learning strategies

Application activities with questions and suggested responses

Whether you teach in an inclusive, resource, or self-contained setting, there's no better guide for teaching your students learning strategies that will last a lifetime.

"This is a rare find—a book for practitioners that actually stays on task throughout and provides an abundance of teaching strategies. As a veteran of the classroom, it is nice to find strategies that are useful and can be readily implemented."

Sally Jeanne Coghlan, Special Education Teacher
Rio Linda Preparatory Academy, Twin Rivers USD, Rio Linda CA

"It is an exceptional book to use as a 'pull it off the shelf again' resource for a practicing special education teacher. It would make a great resource for general education teachers as well. I appreciated that the book covered every area of academics that would normally come up with special education students. I really like this book as a comprehensive resource for strategies to teach to special education students. I felt the book was written for people like me, struggling to do the very best for my students to make their time in school truly of benefit."

Cheryl Moss, Special Education Teacher
Gilbert Middle School, Gilbert, IA

A good book but the scope is too narrow for my class.
