Scruggs, Thomas E.; Williams, N. Joanne
The package presents a training approach for increasing test-taking skills of learning disabled (LD) and behaviorally disordered (BD) children along with a research study illustrating the approach's effectiveness with 92 LD or BD elementary students. The approach focuses on such strategies as attending to appropriate stimuli, marking answers carefully, using time well, and avoiding errors. The package presents lesson plans and student workbooks (with correct answers) on such topics as: (1) word study skills, including vocabulary, contractions, and syllables, and (2) reading comprehension. Each lesson presents a script for the trainer, ideas for remedial work, optional activity suggestions, and a review of previous lessons. (CL)
