Logic for Everyone. Alternative Techniques for Teaching Logic to Learning Disabled Students in the University.
Utzinger, John
The booklet describes ways in which a logic teacher learned to accommodate learning disabled college students. Information on structuring the course includes general principles (such as clear expectations and a variety of learning modalities), considerations in identifying LD students, and use of a detailed course syllabus. He reviews a typical class session with procedures that are helpful to LD and non-LD students alike. Miscellaneous suggestions are offered concerning pictures and diagrams, drill, examinations, and computer assisted instruction. Concluding remarks focus on the importance of helping students apply logic to everyday situations. Appended material includes exercises to identify students with possible LD and a course syllabus.
