Advantages and Disadvantages of Various Curricular-Content Approaches in Resource Classrooms
The question of which content should be taught in resource rooms has remained a hotly debated issue over the years. Some practitioners stress tutoring students with learning disabilities in subject matter content from the general education (e.g., US history or language arts), while others stress only remediation in basic skills (e.g., reading or math). Others feel that students with disabilities should receive a functional life-skills curriculum, with an emphasis on things like making job applications, balancing checkbooks, and so on. The table below lists the advantages and criticisms of each of these curricular approaches.
