Teaching Students with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia: Lessons from Teaching and Science
How can teachers provide effective literacy instruction for students with learning differences while meeting the needs of all students in the class? Finally, a single accessible textbook answers that question for every K 12 educator. The only teacher training text to cover the three learning disabilities that require differentiated instruction dysgraphia, dyslexia, and oral and written language learning disability (OWL LD) this book prepares educators to teach students with learning differences in explicit, reflective, and intellectually engaging ways. Ginger Berninger, a seasoned researcher and former teacher, partners with 40-year teacher and teacher trainer veteran Beverly Wolf for a one-of-a-kind text that gives readers the best of both worlds: critical insights from scientific studies and lessons learned from actual teaching experience. Throughout the book, relevant research findings from diverse fields including genetics, neuroscience, cognitive science, linguistics, and education show teachers the why behind the how. And the extensive instructional guidelines, applicable across school settings and specific curricula, offer innovative approaches to practice that will help teachers successfully meet the needs of individual students.
