        Utilizing a Cloze Activity to Promote Decoding | English Language Arts Strategies for Students with Cognitive Disabilities

        In this self-contained upper elementary classroom, the teacher uses a cloze activity called "Guess the Covered Word" with her students. Students have to predict the covered word based on word meaning plus word length and initial letter sound. The teacher records student responses, and the students help narrow down the choices based on the criteria. Students are able to self-monitor and make corrections based the criteria of word length and meaning. The video demonstrates effective strategies for engaging students with significant cognitive disabilities in literacy instruction.
