Teaching High School Students with Learning Disabilities to Use Model Drawing Strategy to Solve Fraction and Percentage Word Problems
Dennis, Minyi Shih; Knight, Jacqueline; Jerman, Olga
Preventing School Failure, v60 n1 p10-21 2016
This article describes how to teach fraction and percentage word problems using a model-drawing strategy. This cognitive strategy places emphasis on explicitly teaching students how to draw a schematic diagram to represent the qualitative relations described in the problem, and how to formulate the solution based on the schematic diagram. The step-by-step procedures for using the model-drawing strategy are described. In addition, the results of an action research study applying the model-drawing strategy with high school students who have learning disabilities are reported.
