Seven "Whole Class" Strategies to Help Mainstreamed Youngsters Read and Learn Better in Content Area Classes.
Maring, Gerald H.; Furman, Gail
The paper presents strategies to help regular class teachers help their mainstreamed students read and learn better. The seven teaching ideas are offered for use in "whole class" settings and are designed to benefit both mainstreamed and regular students. Further, the strategies can be used by subject matter instructors who cannot become extensively involved in remedial or individualized instruction. The following ideas are discussed and examples offered: (1) once a week oral reading, (2) pyramiding (helping students classify and subordinate related concepts or terms), (3) exploring texts with students, (4) contextual redefinition, (5) words on the wall (to reinforce key vocabulary), (6) guided reading procedures, and (7) special adaptations for study guides.
