Practical Educational Prescriptions for Students in the Mainstream.
Choate, Joyce S., Ed.; Young, Larry S., Ed.
Activity suggestions developed by experienced teachers are presented for mainstreamed students with difficulties in specific instructional areas of reading, mathematics, spelling, writing, and behavior. Activity descriptions are grouped according to instructional area, and are classified as large group, small group, or one to one exercises. Reading suggestions address such areas as comprehension, sight vocabulary, and word analysis. Counting, computation, and fractions are among the mathematics foci. Twenty-six spelling activities include games and tasks involving dictionaries and tape recorders. Handwriting suggestions as well as expressive writing ideas comprise the writing section. Finally, behavior is considered in terms of dealing with short attention spans, incomplete assignments, distractibility, and such other problems as cheating, chronic absenteeism, and poor self concept.
