A MOVIGENIC CURRICULUM, AN EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH TO CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL LEARNING DISABILITIES CONDUCTED AT THE LONGFELLOW SCHOOL, MADISON, WISCONSIN, DURING THE 1964-65 SCHOOL YEAR.
BARSCH, RAY H.
A PHYSIOLOGICAL APPROACH TO THE EDUCATION OF CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL LEARNING DIFFICULTIES WAS THE BASIS OF AN EXPERIMENTAL CURRICULUM. THE LEARNER WAS SEEN AS A SPACIALLY ORIENTED BEING WITH A PHYSIOLOGICAL MAKEUP DESIGNED TO TRAVEL THROUGH "EDUCATIONAL SPACE," PROCESSING INFORMATION TO HIS PROGRESSIVE ADVANTAGE. EIGHT CONSTRUCTS SERVED AS A NUCLEUS FOR A THEORY OF MOVEMENT, AND SPECIAL ACTIVITIES PROGRAMED IN EACH AREA ARE DETAILED. THE MOVIGENIC CURRICULUM IS A SUPPLEMENT TO THE EXISTING CURRICULUM. TWO GROUPS OF SIX ELEMENTARY GRADE, NORMAL ABILITY CHILDREN WITH LEARNING PROBLEMS SPENT 6 HOURS WEEKLY FOR 1 SCHOOL YEAR IN THIS PROGRAM. NINE OF THESE 12 WERE NEUROLOGICALLY IMPAIRED. A THIRD GROUP OF SIX PRESCHOOLERS MET FOR 1/2 YEAR. A PRECISE STUDY OF CHILD CHANGE WAS NOT ATTEMPTED BUT WAS PLANNED AS A LATER, SECOND STAGE. THE FILM "THE MOVIGENIC CURRICULUM," IS AVAILABLE FROM THE BUREAU OF AUDIOVISUAL INSTRUCTION, UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN, 1312 WEST JOHNSON ST., MADISON, WISCONSIN. (HJ)
