Sands, Catherine J. MacMillan
The booklet describes approaches to teaching learning disabled students introductory physical anthropology, as related by a professor involved in the Higher Education for Learning Disabled Students (HELDS) program. The author suggests ways to identify LD students through observation of short attention span, restlessness, and marked discrepancies between listening and reading performance. Adaptive strategies (such as incorporating tactile learning and game playing) and classroom hints are offered. Testing suggestions include allowing the option of oral exams and providing more time to respond to questions. In addition to a course syllabus, appended information also includes a sample test and suggestions for audiovisual materials. (CL)
