The manual provides teaching approaches based on a model of least to highest modification of instruction, which may be used for a continuum of special education placements ranging from regular classroom through hospital settings. The first section on adaptive techniques (requiring the least modification) includes suggestions to adjust time for student work, learning style, learning environment, and content of material; as well as strategies such as color coding textbooks, making filmstrips, and lowering readability of content area materials. The second section on compensatory techniques (requiring greater modification) contains such approaches as helping students develop an organizational notebook, using finger multiplication, and using the mneumonic method. The third section on remedial techniques (requiring the next to highest modification) presents suggestions such as using see-through sheets for student review of material and utilizing peer helpers. The last section on survival skill instruction (requiring the greatest modification) offers such approaches as ways for students to answer chapter questions, take notes, develop study skills, and take tests.
