METHODS AND PSYCHOLOGY OF TEACHING THE SLOW LEARNER.
MARTIN, RUTH; MARTIN, WILLIAM
THE SPECIAL PSYCHOLOGICAL AND EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF THE SLOW LEARNER ARE EMPHASIZED IN THIS PUBLIC SCHOOL CURRICULUM GUIDE. FOR THIS TYPE OF STUDENT MORE FOCUS MUST BE PLACED ON PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT AND ADEQUACY IN BASIC SKILLS THAN ON ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT. THEREFORE THE OBJECTIVES OF A "BASIC WORK PROGRAM" FOR SLOW LEARNERS SHOULD STRESS THE AREAS OF OCCUPATIONAL, SOCIAL, AND PERSONAL ADEQUACY. DESCRIBED IN THE GUIDE ARE SOME IDENTIFYING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SLOW LEARNER (OR SO CALLED DULL NORMAL CHILD), THE PARTICULAR QUALITIES DESIRABLE IN TEACHERS OF THIS GROUP, THE SLOW LEARNER'S TYPICAL LEARNING PATTERNS, AND APPROPRIATE EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES. ONE SECTION IS DEVOTED TO SOME AFFECTIVE AND BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED IN TEACHING SLOW LEARNERS. THE GUIDE CONTAINS SPECIFIC CURRICULUM SUGGESTIONS AND OUTLINES TECHNIQUES FOR TEACHING READING, ARITHMETIC, LANGUAGE ARTS, SOCIAL SKILLS, AND SUCH SPECIAL SUBJECTS AS ART, MUSIC, PHYSICAL EDUCATION, HOMEMAKING, AND SHOP. IT ALSO CONTAINS A SHORT BIBLIOGRAPHY. (NH)
