Strategies for Teaching Algebra to Students with Learning Disabilities: Making Research to Practice Connections
Strickland, Tricia K.; Maccini, Paula
Intervention in School and Clinic, v46 n1 p38-45 Sep 2010
To improve student success in mathematics, the use of research-based interventions is necessary to help secondary students with learning disabilities (LD) access the algebra curriculum. The authors provide an overview of the following research-based approaches: explicit instruction, graduated instructional sequence, technology, and graphic organizers. For each approach, a summary of the research is provided along with suggestions for how the approach can be used by classroom teachers to support algebra instruction. (Contains 4 figures and 2 tables.)
