Instructional Approaches to Slow Learning. Practical Suggestions for Teaching Series.
Younie, William J.
Designed for teachers, the text distinguishes types of slow learners and suggests practical approaches for their educational problems. Slow learning and its types are defined; the slow learner is characterized; stages of educational evaluation and aspects of administration are outlined. Curriculum considerations for different levels are described, and subject matter adaptations are considered for nine major subject areas. The use of audiovisual materials and other educational innovations is explained. Two appendixes annotate suggested teaching materials and a basic reference library for teachers. A bibliography contains 255 items. (JD)
