Visual Learning. Dimensions in Early Learning Series.
Buktenica, Norman A.
A volume in the "Dimensions in Early Learning Series" this monograph proposes suggestions for parents and teachers to supplement normal classroom procedures in the area of visual learning. Chapter I concludes that a child's development of visual skills is directly influenced by inborn tendencies, physical characteristics, and environmental factors. It urges schools to assess skills early and develop appropriate visual instruction. In Chapter II, suggestions are offered to teachers for evaluating visual perceptual performance. A final chapter on teaching methods concludes that factors favorably influencing perception are stability, regularity, predictability, and adequate visual stimulation. An annotated bibliography, a general bibliography, and an additional references list are included. (DO)
