Teaching Social Studies to Middle School Students with Learning Problems
Steele, Marcee M.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v81 n5 p197-200 May-Jun 2008
Because of recent legislation, students with mild disabilities frequently receive social studies instruction in the general education classroom. Therefore, middle school teachers have the challenge of teaching social studies to students with a wide range of abilities. Emphasis in the general education social studies curriculum is on high-level cognitive skills; this is challenging for students with learning problems. The author reviews characteristics of students with learning problems and presents modifications for instruction, textbook use, and assignments to help these students and their teachers have a positive class experience.
