This Issue's Topic:
Tools to Build Student Text and Lecture Comprehension
There are a thousand small ways that students can drift into academic trouble by regularly showing up late for class, for example, or not writing down their homework assignments accurately. Teachers know, however, that such small problems can rapidly snowball into more serious academic difficulties, resulting in reduced test scores, lower course grades, and more disciplinary office referrals.
This Practical Teacher lists common stumbling blocks that can prevent students from fully understanding material taught to them or from completing work assignments. Practical solutions are offered to overcome each potential stumbling block. Educators can adapt the majority of these intervention ideas to include in Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and 504 Accommodation Plans.
