Teaching Remedial Mathematics to Students with Learning Disabilities.
Corn, Juliana, Ed.; And Others
This handbook was developed as one of the objectives of a 3-year federally-funded model project to teach remedial mathematics to community college students with learning disabilities (LD). The underlying theme of this document is to provide a comprehensive plan to assist faculty, tutors, learning center personnel and others engaged in the effort to make basic concepts of arithmetic and algebra comprehension for learning disabled students. The handbook includes: (1) a description of the course for which this curriculum was designed including learning objectives; (2) faculty training materials including, a survey of faculty knowledge and attitudes regarding LD students, a list of the effects of learning disabilities, suggested teaching strategies and course requirement adjustments, sample problems which include task analyses which enumerate the concepts, skills, and strategies involved in each problem, and a discussion of the problems and strategies associated with testing LD students; (3) tutor training materials which include an agenda, suggested teaching methods, and evaluations of the student by the tutor and of the tutor by the student; (4) student workshop materials; (5) computer software listings and evaluation sheets; (6) videotape listings and evaluation sheets; and (7) evaluation checklists. Appendices include a list of 43 references, a list of selected information resources, and descriptions of project materials. (CW)
