The focus of this course is on strategies to accommodate students who have difficulties with basic reading, writing, and study skills. Emphasis will be placed on accommodating students versus “helping” students by completing work for them. A variety of practical techniques will be studied and practiced through in and out of class exercises. Collaborative teaching will be used by students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. In addition, students will learn a variety of study strategies, including mnemonics, double column notes, reading strategies, concepts of active vs. passive learning, organization and time management skills. Students will be expected to work in small groups to develop strategies to teach various skills to their peers in the class. Innovation and creativity are key to success in this course.
