Making Science Accessible: Strategies for Modifying Science Activities to Meet the Needs of a Diverse Student Population.
Fetters, Marcia; Pickard, Dawn; Pyle, Eric
The motto of the national science education reform efforts is "science for all" regardless of gender, ethnicity, socio-economic background, or any special need. The main issue of this statement is the modification of science activities so that a wider range of students can benefit from it, which is a difficult task. For teachers, the dilemma is being able to reach students with special needs. This paper demonstrates and provides examples of general instructional strategies that can be used to modify science activities so that they can address the educational needs of a wide range of students.
