What Research Tells Us About Academic Preparation
This month’s article presents the three major conclusions of what
20 studies tell us about preparing students for mainstream classes. Do
you use all three in your classes?
1.Teach Fully-Integrated Academic Skills
Just as students need to read, write, listen, and speak in a mainstream

complete curriculum includes training in general academic skills and
then focuses in on how these skills are applied in reading textbooks,
listening to lectures, writing essays, and speaking in presentations.
