How to make accommodations for a large group of struggling students?
I am an intern at a middle school and in one of my current Pre-AP classes, almost a third of my students are below the reading level they should ideally be at. This has caused a drop in scores on almost all assignments that are written and/or administered on the computer. They do significantly better on assignments that are read out loud in class with the students answering verbally and/or writing a short answer on paper. My question is, what are some ways to accommodate this rather large group of students in the class for tests and assignments? Since the group of students is rather large, I don't want it to effect the other students in the class, but they should also have the proper accommodations made for them to succeed in the class. Does anyone have any ideas on how to differentiate instruction in my class?
