Despite the potential benefits of learning social studies content, there is limited investigation in this area for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). In the elaborative interrogation condition, students were provided with each ordered reason and prompted and questioned to provide an explanation for each. In two experiments, learning disabled junior-high school students learned the definitions of 14 vocabulary words either according to a pictorial mnemonic strategy (the “keyword method”) or via the principles of direct instruction. A body of research exploring what students learn from reading and the complex process of reasoning that goes along with interpreting their history textbooks is reviewed. The focus of this chapter is students with cognitive and emotional/behavior disorders. In addition to reading challenges, students must engage in higher order thinking and reasoning. Across studies, teachers who engaged in the CAP-PD process made important gains in terms of how much time they spent delivering evidence-based vocabulary instruction and the number of different practices implemented with fidelity. Teachers tended to solve the problem of textbook difficulty in three ways: Helping students to cope with the textbook, deemphasizing the textbook, or reinforcing and extending textbook information. Twenty-eight middle school students, diagnosed as dyslexic and attending a school using the Slingerland approach to remediation of dyslexia, used a computer-based reading system for reading literature for about one-half hour a day for a semester. This research uses the seminal 1994 Passe and Beattie study as a comparative referent to examine current instructional strategies used to teach such students. Implications for research and practice are discussed. One part of the project utilizes a design-based research approach to investigate how learning settings and materials must be designed to enable students with intellectual disabilities to work independently and learn effectively. Also included were a reduced-list direct-instruction condition, where students were required to learn only half the number of minerals (i.e., four minerals) in the same amount of allotted time as in the other conditions, and a free-study condition, where students were instructed to learn the eight minerals however they wished. Conclusions are drawn for the facilitated competence gain for students with and without special needs. The research study is conducted in cooperation with an inclusive urban middle school (grade 5 to 8), where students with and without special educational needs learn together. 1047-1058). They are useful for reading difficult material, highlighting information, valuing cultural diversity, meeting needs of special populations, and supporting language learning. Some students confused apartments with hotels, and most were vague about what is involved in renting apartments and why some people choose to do so. Implications for practice indicate use of supplemental peer mediated hands-on activities may provide necessary review and practice for students with disabilities. Das vorliegende Werk ist ein Ergebnis des von der Deutschen Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU) geförderten Projekts „Umweltbildung und Inklusion“. Over the past two decades, there has been a marked increase in the number of students with mild disabilities who receive social studies instruction in the general education classroom. THIS RESEARCH examines the effectiveness of Peer-Assisted Learning Strategies for First-Grade Readers (First-Grade PALS) as a tool for enhancing the reading achievement of different learner types, particularly low-achieving students, representing the range of academic diversity typically present in primary grade classrooms. That is why. DISCUSSION. The purpose of this study was to improve the comprehension and problem-solving skills of students with disabilities in social studies using a conceptually framed, computer-adapted history text. Subjects were randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups. They also learn that the values and attitudes that motivated individuals and groups to act as they did were in large measure the result of historically specific social structures and institutional arrangements. Two weeks subsequent to the six-week instructional period, students were given a delayed posttest in which they were asked to provide the numerical order of the president, given a president name; and the president's name, given the numerical order. The article discusses implications of these findings for studying complex literacy interventions. Using a multiple probe design, three students with ASD and intellectual disability were taught various scientific concepts related to convection (e.g., precipitation, condensation) via systematic instruction that included constant time delay and multiple exemplars of a teacher-directed GO. The results show the feasibility and benefits for all of using inquiry teaching: all children, including those with special needs, succeed in the objectives proposed. Finally, additional research might look at how students with various reading challenges engage with online course texts using multiple data collection and analysis techniques. Using my high school history classroom as a case study, I consider two questions: What might encourage students to raise disciplined suspicions of the typical sources of scholastic authority? For complex reasons, girls, more likely than boys, tend to disengage with physical sciences and engage with certain fields such as biology, psychology, and the social sciences. Thugbout the study, modifications were available for some chapters and not for others. On the cumulative delayed recall tests, however, differences were observed by condition and group. In the mnemonic elaborative interrogation condition, students were provided with mnemonic peg-words to facilitate recall of the ordered reasons for dinosaur extinction and also coached and prompted to provide explanations. 8-10 ©2005 National Council for the Social Studies Teaching Social Studies to Students with Mild Disabilities Marcee M. Steele For a generation, national legislation has moved “vigorously” to compel schools to place students with disabilities in the “least restric-tive environment.” Effects of Historical Reasoning Instruction and Writing Strategy Mastery in Culturally and Academically Diverse Middle School Classrooms. This article accentuates the significance of European Journal of Special Needs Education 11 managing the cognitive loads of students in the instructional design of IL, and draws attention to the importance of teachers designing an appropriate as well as stimulating IL process that suits the ID students' cognitive capacity (Grossen et al. This broad perspective on inclusion demands that everyone can take part in everyday classroom life. First, we present an overview of the nature of scientific knowledge. However, instruction in these subjects has often been overlooked in the quest to better understand and improve leaning in English/language arts and mathematics. Patterns across the cases informed the identification of advanced instructional strategies hypothesized to support special needs students relative to language/cognition, print literacy, attention, and social relations challenges. Fourteen percent showed lower comprehension scores when using the system, and there is some indication that this degradation is associated with kinesthetic-motor weakness. This investigation compared quantitative outcomes associated with classwide peer tutoring using differentiated hands-on activities vs. teacher-directed instruction for students with mild disabilities in inclusive 8th-grade science classes. The learning environment is videotaped and reflected with the teachers. In this article, we review our program of research in science education for students with disabilities in order to reveal some insights into this debate. LearnTechLib - The Learning & Technology Library. Consistent with recent theoretical analyses of the different prose-learning functions of pictures, in comparison to the no-picture control condition (a) both nonmnemonic and mnemonic pictures facilitated students' free recall of the extinction reasons; (b) only mnemonic pictures facilitated students' recall of the reasons in conjunction with their plausibility numbers; and (c) neither mnemonic nor nonmnemonic pictures facilitated students' recall of additional, unpictured, factual information from the passage. Phase 1 (′97-′98) of the design experiment utilized qualitative and quantitative data to construct case studies of individual learners with special needs. This article is divided in two parts.

Additionally, students must understand that concepts are categories that share characteristics with one another in order to define them as a class (Kame'enui & Simmons, 1990; ... Two reviews and a meta-analysis about studies in this field summarise that IBSE is only benefiting for students with special needs when it is carefully structured and scaffolded, ... A balance between openness and structure has shown to be effective for students with cognitive and emotional/behaviour disorders (Werning & Lütje-Klose, 2007). However, instruction in these subjects has often been overlooked in the quest to better understand and improve leaning in English/language arts and mathematics. This study investigates the use of inquiry learning (IL) approach for intellectually disabled (ID) students. Th e proposal, designed with the appropriate adaptations to meet each special case, was implemented in a third grade class with 26 children, 5 of them with special educational needs. & Okolo, C.M. This article reviews research on vocabulary interventions involving students with learning disabilities. The view that knowledge cannot be transmitted but must be constructed by the mental activity of learners underpins contemporary perspectives on science education. A comparison between international and national research are given. Resumen En este trabajo presentamos los resultados de una intervención didáctica en el área de ciencias, en tercer curso de educación primaria, en una clase con 26 niños, 5 de ellos con necesidades educativas especiales (NEE) dentro de un aula inclusiva. Your degree will open doors for you to teach grades 7 - 12, specializing in biology, English or social studies, and to become eligible to teach students with disabilities. These criticisms, along with movement toward whole-language approaches in some schools and the availability of alternatives to textbooks, have resulted in increased use of biographies, historical fiction, and literature-based accounts of the past, providing students with multiple sources for learning history. Therefore, this research project is dedicated to the teachers' scaffolding teaching science in inclusive classes. This study examined the effects of peer-assisted learning strategies (PALS) on students' literacy development and beliefs about reading, when PALS is implemented with secondary-level students in remedial and special education classes. This study investigated the impact of cognitive organizers, with the integration of technology, Inspiration 6 software, compared to a traditional textbook instruction format on content-area learning in high school inclusive social studies classes. In science education inquiry-based learning is, among others, recommended to deal with the diversity of students in a classroom. In addition, students were able to generalize to “real-world” applications. Science and social studies have much to offer to all learners--including those with disabilities. Improving inclusive middle school science teachers’ vocabulary instruction is a critical step toward helping those professionals support the learning needs of all students. Heterogeneity and Diversity: A Growing Challenge or Enrichment for Science Education in German Schools? Furthermore, these subjects offer opportunities for students to learn and apply literacy and mathematics skills, engage in authentic problem solving and inquiry, and experience success in the general education classroom. The information collected as a result of this research may influence professional development among teachers to improve the instruction in social studies content and the inclusion of cultural universals in instruction. Bu araştırmada bir ilköğretim okulunun 2. sınıfında bulunan okuduğunu anlama güçlüğü olan öğrencilerin, okuduğunu anlama becerilerinin gelişiminde "bir öğretmen bir yardımcı" modeliyle yürütülen birlikte öğretim uygulamalarının etkililiğinin değerlendirilmesi amaçlanmıştır. Supported Literacy engages students in integrated thematic units in which they read, discuss, and write about a shared, age-appropriate text. This database collects and processes scientific publications focused on teaching science to students with learning disabilities, in order to promote Special Education research and teaching. The review uncovers mixed results, some studies reporting more positive attitudes for girls and vice versa. Based on the selection criteria, six articles spanning the period from 1978 to the present were identified. Research has shown that traditional methods of instruction are still used and are in fact dominant among content area teachers, Purpose Textbased STEM instruction, therefore, provides little support to students who struggle with learning due to (a) the mismatch between students' independent reading skills and the extensive text-based curricula, and (b) deficits in background knowledge that interfere with learning STEM concepts (Crockett, 2004; ... Science education is one of the most difficult subject areas for students with some types of disabilities due to its complex vocabulary and theoretical concepts, posing a significant barrier that these students must overcome (Brigham et al., 2011;Mastropieri et al., 2006). The focus on teachers and texts essentially ignores the ritualized and traditional deference that students afford to the authority of texts and teachers. Specifically, the investigators examined the effect of anchored instruction on (a) the length (long or short) and level (factual or interpretive) of questions asked by, and responses to student questions by, the classroom teacher; (b) the length and level of questions asked by, and responses made by, ninth-grade students; and (c) student participation in classroom instructional activities. In general, work in the area of science is sparse for students with significant cognitive disabilities. The role of personal agency in historical writing, both for those who write and those who read, is emphasized as an important element separating the two rhetorical genres. (2008). Elde edilen bulgular doğrultusunda, araştırmaya katılan katılımcıların okuduğunu anlama becerilerinin gelişiminde "bir öğretmen bir yardımcı" modeliyle yürütülen birlikte öğretim uygulamalarının etkili olduğu sonucuna varılmıştır. Examples of one evidence-based practice, Content Enhancement, are provided to illustrate instructional protocols for teachers of diverse classes that include adolescents with LD. In recent research, it is stated that special education and classroom teachers are working in collaboration and co-teaching approaches are very important approaches on effective learning in inclusive education. It is also suggested that an existentialist feminist theoretical perspective may be informative in accounting for the difference between the two genders regarding affect in chemistry and physics. Some students reported gains in reading speed and exhibited increased span of attention for and endurance in reading when using the system. Only a few understood that renting is a profit-making business or that people can get mortgage loans to allow them to move into a house before they have accumulated its full purchase price. Publisherconstructed tests were administered to the students before and after they worked on each chaptet;. Teachers were also asked to describe the modifications or adaptations they made to help students who might have difficulty understanding the textbook. In einem Teil des Projekts wird mithilfe eines Design-Based Research-Ansatzes der Frage nachgegangen, welche Anforderungen Lernsettings und Lernmaterialien, insbesondere Versuchsanleitungen, für Schülerinnen und Schüler mit kognitiven Beeinträchtigungen erfüllen müssen, um eigenständiges Arbeiten und nachhaltiges Lernen zu ermöglichen. Over the years, mnemonic instruction has been promoted as an effective strategy to teach students with learning problems including learning disabilities (LD) or mild intellectual disability (MID). The studies were analyzed based on the following intervention research variables: word selection procedure, materials, instructional design and procedures, duration of the intervention, mastery criterion, measures of vocabulary learning (word knowledge level and reading comprehension), maintenance, and generalization (reading comprehension). in teaching students with LD as they help them make use of their cognitive strengths. This investigation sought to determine whether elaborative interrogation techniques would facilitate recall of information relevant to, but not included in, mnemonic and representational pictures. For 40 percent of the students, the gains were large, from two to as much as five grade levels. This paper examines CRLs through the Ethnic Studies Praxis Story Plot (ESPSP). Limitations of the study, implications for practice for both general and special education teachers, and future research are discussed. First-Grade PALS helps teachers to accommodate this diversity (a) by decentering instruction through peer mediation so that students become more actively involved in the learning process, (b) by including provisions for integrating phonological and alphabetic skills into the decoding of words in connected text, and (c) by providing extensive and repeated exposure to a variety of children's literature. Over a six-week period, students with learning disabilities in an inner-city middle school were taught the chronological orders of 32 U.S. presidents. However, we lack examples of successful classroom alternatives, namely descriptions of challenging history instruction that treats textbooks and teachers from within the discipline. Preterm birth and low maternal education increase children's risk of failure of first-grade standardized tests. ... • Teaching mnemonic strategies is effective as students can recall vocabulary and thus have more capacity to learn science concepts (Scruggs & Mastropieri, 2000; ... For example, the National Longitudinal Transition Study-2 (NLTS2) revealed that 99% of general education teachers felt that students with learning disabilities (LD) who are in their classrooms are expected to keep up with other students in the class, yet the same teachers reported that only 78% of these students actually do keep up (Newman, 2006). The adaptation featured vocabulaly exercises and framed outlines. The research reported in this article was conducted for the purpose of closely studying the engagement and learning of students who have learning disabilities as they participate in a particular approach to guided inquiry called Guided Inquiry supporting Multiple Literacies (GIsML). To date, proposed content area literacy interventions have not addressed the specific language-based needs of students with LD. Implications for inclusive content area instruction are provided. Overall findings revealed that experimental condition classes statistically outperformed comparison condition classes on content learned; this was true for target content (taught directly in the experimental condition) as well as nontarget content (related information not included in the experimental condition). Any approach to science requires learning new and sometimes domain-specific vocabulary. Brigham, Scruggs & Mastropieri, 2011; Irving, Nti & Johnson, 2007; Mastropieri et al., 1998;McCarthy, 2005; ... -"Wie bewegt sich der Maulwurf durch den Boden?" He operated from a theoretical framework based on how he believed historical thinking and understanding occur for such novice learners. How effective is inquiry learning for students with mild disabilities? Twenty normally achieving students, 18 students with LD, and 16 students with MR were provided individually with guided coaching, in a prespecified sequence of steps, intended to promote induction of the association between pendulum length and pendulum motion. Following the idea of "science for all," every student is entitled to develop skills in science to the fullest potential on the basis of appropriate educational opportunities. Analysis of results indicated that mnemonic condition students significantly outperformed controls on measures of spatial relocation and correct matching of place name with victor. (vgl. In addition, much of what students read before third grade focuses on narrative versus expository material which "more complicated concepts are conveyed" (Spor, 2005, p. 19) that presents challenges for English Learners and students reading below grade level. The effects of a summary skills learning strategy on the comprehension of science text were examined with 5 elementary-age urban minority special education students in a summer remedial program. In this study, we used a concurrent delayed multiple probe design to evaluate the interactive use of computer-based concept maps on content acquisition with science and social studies texts for Hispanic students with LD in Grades 4 and 5. Starting as early as middle school, some students with disabilities may begin to form negative opinions toward science because the textbooks and instructional materials are often inaccessible, reducing their ability to effectively comprehend the material (Lee & Erdogan, 2007; ... Not for every student level 3 is the optimal level to be achieved (Blanchard et al., 2010). By: Keith Lenz and Jean B. Schumaker. Students with disabilities performed similarly to normally achieving and honors students in one of the most challenging comprehension and writing activities, writing persuasively about their interpretation of a text. It involved 19 middle, Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education. Teachers, for example in languages, can use literature-related themes to keep students focused on their areas of interest. Science and math are critical subjects for students preparing for college and challenging careers. In J. Lavonen, K. Juuti, J. Lampiselkä, A. Uitto & K. Hahl (Eds. The STEM FOR ALL initiative asserts that all students, including those with disabilities and other diverse learning needs, should be included in meaningful STEM education and develop expertise in STEM areas as well as 21st century skills associated with STEM learning. This article provides a review and analysis of research targeting the rift separating history written for adults and the historical texts aimed at K-12 audiences––specifically history textbooks. Students were observed to be more actively involved in classroom instructional activities, and they increased their school attendance. The results are discussed in the general context of illustrations as applied to LD students' learning from text. We also provide recommendations to researchers and practitioners for improving content area learning. The purpose of this article is to explore current concerns (e.g., text structure, readability) regarding history textbooks and provide recommendations for modifying instruction to improve students' acquisition of history knowledge. Scruggs, T.E., Mastropieri, M.A. Although many stakeholders agree with the claim "science for all" of the NRC (National Research Council 1996), there is a lack of research on special educational needs in the context of science education . In conjunction with the influx of more students with disabilities being included in inclusive and general education classrooms where lectures with note-taking comprise a majority of instruction, teachers must find ways to assist all students in their classes, especially students with disabilities. You can request the full-text of this article directly from the authors on ResearchGate. The authors consider the following point: To what extent can Ethnic Studies-framed tools affect approaches for learning English, writing and reading while simultaneously being responsive to a community’s needs? After a training session and a 90-second filler activity, students were asked to locate each battle on an unlabeled map and indicate which side had won the battle. The terms "heterogeneity" and "diversity" are first explained before discussing specific studies. In addition (a) mnemonically instructed students learned as much about eight minerals in the same amount of time that direct-instruction students learned about four minerals; and (b) direct instruction per se did not facilitate students' learning relative to free study. However, memory or expressive language requirements of recall tasks may affect the ability of students with LD to show their understanding of passages. METHODS. On the surface level, traditional scientific educational approaches structure the discourse. One group was taught by presenting key concepts with a visual spatial display of this information. Scruggs, T.E., Mastropieri, M.A. (2008). Science and social studies have much to offer to all learners--including those with disabilities. Educational reform literature is filled with criticism of the omniscient tone that teachers and textbooks assume in history classrooms. Additionally , there is a lack of research in science education how to foster students appropriately in regard to their diverse preconditions. Most of the literature concerning inclusive science education was published in recent years, and is more normative than empirical. These findings build on a study conducted by Hudson (1996), in which effective teaching techniques (i.e., student practice and teacher feedback) were successfully used at the prelesson phase of instruction. Over the past 15 years, students with disabilities have been included in the general education environment at markedly higher rates; however, their achievement is not increasing at the same pace. Ideas for change are developed. Las ciencias naturales no suelen estar incluidas en los apoyos (Scruggs, Mastropieri y Okolo 2008), a pesar de que la enseñanza de las ciencias sea considerada una de las áreas más valiosas para los estudiantes con discapacidades (Patton y Andre 1989) y que la Unión Europea (European Union 2015) señale que su enseñanza para.
