Developing and Implementing a Model for the Remediation of Weaknesses of Learning Abilities in Gifted and High Achieving Fourth Grade Students.
The practicum was designed to identify and remediate the weaknesses in the learning abilities of 26 students in a top homogeneously grouped fourth grade class. Individual strengths and weaknesses for each student were identified by various factors and the 24 subtests of the Structure of the Intellect-Learning Abilities Test (SOI). An educational intervention program to remediate the specific deficiencies was matched to the individual weaknesses. SOI Exercise Sheets and the SOI Sourcebook were included in the curriculum. Evaluation following anticipated attainment for each student in each area of weakness proved successful. Factors which contributed to the success of the program were skillful and regular teaching to the weaknesses, teacher and staff dedication to the improvement of deficiencies, and the comprehensiveness of the intervention program. Appended are tables with statistical data. (Author/SB)
