60• Use highly visual materials (e.g., many figures, pictures, diagrams) in reading assignments. • Allow the student to use a tape recorderCurriculum adaptions in reading and writing:• Shorten assignments based on mastery of key concepts.• Shorten spelling tests based on mastering most functional words.• Substitute clay models, posters, cartoons, panoramas, puppet shows, models, dioramas, plays, for written assignments.• Change from percentage to mastery grading.• Decrease all forms of competitive marking and grading.• Allow students to work in pairs who have complementary learning strengths so both feel capable in some areas of learning.• Specify, list and make a check up document stating exactly what the student will need to learn to pass, and do it it at the beginning of the grading period and then make weekly references to it, with the student having the progress chart available for personal motivation.• Modify expectations so student can succeed.• Have conferences to help student recognize the value of concepts and help choose ways to demonstrate learning.• Use both printed and oral directions on assignments.• Give directions in small chunks that student can remember and accomplish successfully.• Have student repeat directions to determine that communications are clear.• Show a model or provide rubrics for the finished product.• Provide support as soon as the student shows frustration or flagging interest.• Check progress frequently in the first few minutes of the assignment.• Break large assignments in to smaller chunks and help student succeed at each juncture.61Literacy ScreeningEarly indicators May talk later than most children.?
