Item: 9781557669346

Format: paperback
Pages: 256

How can teachers provide effective literacy instruction for students with learning differences – while meeting the needs of all students in the class? This accessible text answers that question for every K-12 educator. The first to fully cover the three learning disabilities that require differentiated instruction – dyslexia, oral and written language learning disability (OWL LD), and dysgraphia – this book shows educators how to teach students with learning differences in explicit, reflective, and intellectually engaging ways.

Blending critical insights from scientific studies with lessons learned from teaching experience, this text prepares educators to:

  • organise classrooms, routines, and lesson plans through differentiated instruction to meet their students’ instructional needs
  • improve every aspect of students’ literacy by providing both oral and written language instruction
  • create a positive learning environment that promotes intellectual engagement
  • apply a specific framework for instruction that helps students overcome working memory inefficiencies and fluency problems
  • consider how preservice teacher education and inservice professional development can prepare teachers for differentiated instruction in general education

Filled with relevant research findings from diverse fields and extensive instructional guidelines, this essential textbook ensures that teachers are ready to deliver effective, individually tailored instruction to students with dyslexia, OWL LD, and dysgraphia.
