Using Content Enhancements to Improve the Performance of Adolescents with Learning Disabilities in Content Classes
Learning Disabilities Research and Practice
Teachers can use content enhancements within an effective teaching cycle to benefit all students in content classes, such as history and science. Content enhancements are techniques used by the teacher to help students identify, organize, comprehend, and memorize critical content information. The enhancements include visual displays, mnemonics, advance organizers, study guides, peer mediation, audiotapes, and computer-assisted instruction. The authors describe types of content enhancement and review how it has been used with learning-disabled students in secondary content classes.
