The Slow Learner in the Classroom. Second Edition.
Kephart, Newell C.
The volume addresses itself to two basic competencies needed by teachers of the slow learning child: a rationale permitting consistent interpretation of the child's learning behavior and a repertory of techniques for presenting information in a myraid of ways, from which the teacher can select classroom presentation methods most appropriate for each slow learner. Part I, Development and Achievement, presents a rationale for learning based on two primary principles: development and generalization. Major topics discussed are the course of cognitive and perceptual development, generalization, motor bases of achievement, the perceptual process, development of form perception, space discrimination, and the time dimension. Part II, Training Activities, is a series of teaching techniques related to successive steps in the rationale. Covered are the training process, perceptual-motor training, the perceptual-motor match, training ocular control, chalkboard training, and training form perception. (KW)
