Procedures, Practices and Expectations
In addition to an extensive literature review using academic databases, the researcher will conduct a pre-test/post-test quantitative...
This will be an experimental design in which one half of the class, selected randomly, will receive advanced technology training in reading, while the other half of the class will not. The two groups of students' progress in reading can then be compared to help determine the level to which the technology has enhanced (or not enhanced) their reading skills. The pre-test will occur at the beginning of the semester before any advanced reading technologies have been used. The post-test will occur at the end of the semester after the non-control-group students have become familiar with the technology.
It is expected that the results of this study will provide the information necessary to create a technology plan that has the potential of improving the reading proficiency of special needs, middle school students.. The results of this study can be a basis for policies aimed at optimizing the use of available resources for improving the reading skills of students with special needs.
Students then move to advisory to discuss what they learned from the principal, then begins first period science class. Science is tutorial based, but often broken up into groups of four for lab and experimentation work. Math lab includes a number of different activities that change out regularly. Following math, the students meet for Art class, which varies daily in activities, social and spatial development. Lunch and a brief recess follows. First class after
Integration of music and reading may help parents prepare their children for school. On the surface, music and literacy seem opposite of each other both in meaning and delivery.

The study focused on an urban middle school and two particular classes of 34 learning disabled students. Researchers broke the two classes down into two groups, the intervention group and the comparison group. The intervention group was introduced to the strategic lesson plans and collaborative techniques found in the computer administered CACSR. This program consisted of lessons on how to use the program and also informed students how to then
Reading is fundament skill necessary for our children to compete in a more globalized world. Evidence has shown strong correlations between education and income. These correlations have endured multiple generations and reflect the need for continual improvement on the part of students. The ability to read and comprehend passages therefore is the first of many building blocks needed to be help students within a more competitive and highly dynamic environment.
