Effective Teaching: A Guide to Diagnostic-Prescriptive Task Analysis.
Valett, Robert E.
Written as a guide for diagnostic-prescriptive teachers desiring greater effectiveness in working with learning disabled children, the book has been designed for in-service and professional training programs but can also be used as a semiprogramed self-instructional aid by the experienced teacher. Chapter discussions and accompanying programed text cover: the personal characteristics, skills, and values of an effective diagnostic-prescriptive teacher, planning for individual needs, task analysis of student performance data for establishing appropriate educational and behavioral objectives, principles of prescriptive instruction, systematic reinforcement contingencies in the classroom to motivate students to learn, six common learning contracts and exchange systems for use with students with learning disabilities, techniques of negative reinforcement, and several alternative or supplemental strategies (psychoeducational consultants, case review meetings, conjoint intervention programs, teacher's aides, learning resource centers).
