Strategies for Meeting the Needs of the Mildly Handicapped Black Adolescent.
The paper addresses issues in the education of mildly handicapped black adolescents. Among ways recommended to meet the needs of this population are promoting affective education, developing a positive self concept, fostering the student's motivation, teaching social behavior through role playing and videotapes, developing students' ability to organize, encouraging students' special talents in sports or other areas, helping students obtain survival strategies, becoming sensitive to the needs of black students, and identifying learning styles and matching them with appropriate teaching styles. In addition, suggestions are made in the curriculum and instructional area, including providing opportunities for incidental learning and teaching students to break down tasks. (CL)
