EVERYDAY PROBLEMS AND THE CHILD WITH LEARNING DIFFICULTIES.
BERNSTEIN, BEBE
THE PROBLEMS THAT DAILY LIVING MAY PRESENT TO CHILDREN WHO EXPERIENCE LEARNING DIFFICULTIES ARE DISCUSSED, AND THE NEED FOR THE TEACHER TO SURVEY THE EXPERIMENTAL BACKGROUND OF HIS CLASS AND TO DEVELOP A METHOD FOR DEALING WITH THE CHILDREN'S PROBLEMS IS DESCRIBED. PROBLEMS THAT MERIT ATTENTION INCLUDE THOSE WHICH FUNCTION INDEPENDENTLY. THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS EXPLORED IN THIS BOOK ARE CATEGORIZED THREE WAYS--AS SITUATION PROBLEMS, AS CONCEPT PROBLEMS, AND AS APPLIED INFORMATION PROBLEMS. THE AUTHOR SUGGESTS A METHODOLOGY WHICH STRESSES TEACHER PREPARATION, STEPS IN LESSON DEVELOPMENT, MEANINGFUL VOCABULARY, CONCRETE LEARNING AIDS, ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES, AND VISUAL AIDS. THRITY-EIGHT PROBLEMS, THEIR DELINEATIONS, AND SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS CONSTITUTE THE BULK OF THE BOOK. IN EACH CASE THE PROBLEM IS STATED AND THE FOLLOWING POINTS ARE PRESENTED IN OUTLINE FORM--MATERIALS, METHODS, SOLUTION, LEARNING AIDS AND ENVIRONMENTAL VOCABULARY, RELATED PROBLEMS, TEACHER DIRECTIONS, AND SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES. EXAMPLES OF THE 25 SITUATION PROBLEMS ARE HOW TO OPEN A CAN OR JAR, WHICH TOOL WOULD YOU USE, AND WHY PAINT THINGS. SEVEN CONCEPT PROBLEMS INCLUDE SUCH QUESTIONS AS WHAT DO COLORS MEAN AND WHAT DO ARROWS TELL YOU TO DO. REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SIX APPLIED INFORMATION PROBLEMS ARE WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT YOURSELF IN AN EMERGENCY AND HOW DO YOU SEND FOR THINGS OR FIND YOUR FAVORITE RADIO OR TELEVISION PROGRAM. A FINAL SECTION SUGGESTS ADDITIONAL TOPICS OR PROBLEMS THAT MAY LEAD TO FURTHER EXPLORATION.
