Teaching Diverse Learners in Inclusive Settings: Steps for Adapting Instruction.
Mohr, Laura L.
Ways to adapt instruction for students with diverse learning needs in inclusive settings are suggested. Strategies and accommodations for students with learning differences are proposed concerning: the learning environment, learning procedures, progress measurement, instructional methods and materials, and classroom management techniques. Specific accommodations address student seating and space considerations, time allowed for students to process information and complete learning tasks, the daily schedule and student's expected work rate, modifications to testing and grading, class and homework assignments, study groups, course organizers, modifying learning objectives and adapting texts, varying teaching and learning methods and modes of student response, assistive technology, adaptations of visual and oral materials and methods, and various classroom techniques to provide structure and support. Accommodations are suggested for each of the following content areas: reading, mathematics, writing, and science/social studies. The paper includes an instructional accommodations planning sheet, an instructional inventory to assess student-teacher fit, and a materials analysis inventory. (SW)
