Using Graphic Organizers in Secondary, Inclusive Content Classes


For adolescents with reading disabilities, struggles with comprehension are a major obstacle to mastering academic content areas. This text, developed for use with students in grades 6–12 with and without disabilities, attempts to resolve comprehension difficulties. To help teachers implement effective comprehension strategies across a wide range of content areas, the book provides complete overviews of each strategy, how-to guidance based on recommended practice, charts, graphic organizers, mnemonic strategies, and sample lesson plans to use in the classroom.
