This book provides guidance to teaching students that encounter difficulties in a number of learning areas, including science, social studies, history, geography and environmental education. Using a cross-curricular perspective, this book explores multiple teacher-directed and student-centred instructional approaches for classroom use, highlighting the strengths, weaknesses, and specific aspects of each one. It also examines the impact of classroom interactions that influence learning, suggests strategies for reducing learning failure and enhancing students' progress, and presents a 'big picture' perspective on teaching and learning difficulties.
