Improving Access to Elementary School Social Studies Instruction: Strategies to Support Students with Learning Disabilities
Ciullo, Stephen
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v48 n2 p102-109 Nov-Dec 2015
Social studies instruction in upper elementary school (Grades 3-5) is important for building foundational content knowledge to equip students for the secondary school curriculum. Due to numerous school initiatives and demands on the time of teachers, social studies instruction can play second fiddle to reading and mathematics instruction, which can impact outcomes for students with learning disabilities (LD). This article presents learning strategies, resources, and suggestions for promoting access to the social studies curriculum considering the realities of special educators' schedules.
