Teachers take many variables into account when planning the elements of instructional units for use in their classrooms. An effective syllabus draws on such factors as classroom management technique, methods chosen for positive encouragement, reinforcement of previously learned skills, and instruction in new lessons. Research has shown that children learning in highly structured classroom environments will demonstrate more effective retention of their lessons than children engaged in less defined lesson plans.

Studies indicate, specifically, that many students struggling with reading comprehension and related disabilities can overcome their issues through detailed instructional strategies. These strategies may include careful monitoring on the teacher’s part of when to increase or continue with the current level of difficulty, breaking lesson plans into smaller segments, and delivering examples of various problem-solving models.
