Article Review 2 (scholarly article)
The second review should be from a scholarly article. Scholarly articles are in journals such as Exceptional Children, Remedial and Special Education; Behavior Disorders, etc. The key to look for is whether the journal has pictures – if it does, it’s very unlikely that it is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal. The scholarly article may be a literature review, a study, or a “talk piece.”
To pick a topic for your reviews,look at the course schedule topics list below:
Concept of Specific Learning Disability – Is it a construct worth saving?
Interventions for Students ADHD
Increasing Reading Fluency
Enhancing Reading Comprehension
Instruction for Students with Language Disorders
Dyslexia (Be careful with this one! The definition is not what you probably think it is!)
Emotional & Behavioral Supports for Students with LD
Learning Strategy Development and Use
Response to Intervention
Other topics by approval
Choose one topic that interest you and then search ERIC or PsychInfo using the library databases for articles in the area.
When reviewing the paper ask yourself how the topic relates to students with learning disabilities and what the implications are for students and teachers. The topic MUST be related to students with high-incidence disabilities. Do not pick a topic about students with severe disabilities autism. If you’re in doubt, clear it with one of us first.
On the day you turn in the review, be prepared to share your paper with another student or the class during a discussion at the beginning of class.
