Working Together

Linking Skills and Curriculum for Adolescents with a Language Learning Disability

By Mandy Brent, Chris Millgate-Smith

Working Together is a must-read book for busy classroom teachers who sometimes see the needs of students with language and learning difficulties as a strong challenge. This book is a collaboration between secondary teacher, Chris Millgate-Smith and speech pathologist, Mandy Brent, and it clearly illustrates how mainstream curriculum can be differentiated for the benefit of all students with a language learning disability (LLD). Working Together incorporates: explanation of the key factors that impact on LLD students in the classroom - difficulties with memory, restricted oral language and vocabulary, poor reading and writing skills, and levels of anxiety and self-esteem . teaching and learning strategies embedded into 6 units designed for mixed ability classrooms, covering the major disciplines of English, Math, Science, and History . detailed advice for teachers and support staff on sequencing learning . skill development strategies to assist LLD students to access the mainstream curriculum successfully.
