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.

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
