Learning Disabilities: Learner-Centered Approaches. Training Packet for a Three-Session Workshop. Study of ABE/ESL Instructor Training Approaches.
Osher, David; And Others
This training packet on learner-centered approaches for learning disabled students is 1 of 10 developed by the Study of Adult Basic Education(ABE)/English as a Second Language (ESL) Training Approaches Project to assist ABE instructors, both professionals and volunteers. The packet is intended to stand alone and encompasses a three-session workshop series with activities scheduled for participants to accomplish between sessions. Ideally, the sessions should take place about 1 month apart. Introductory materials include information about the series and the training packet, a workshop overview (objectives, time, materials checklist, preparations checklist), and workshop outline for each session. Trainer notes for each session include a checklist of tasks to be completed before the session and an outline of activities with necessary materials and times. Topics covered in the sessions are as follows: what a learning disability is; attitudes, barriers, and accommodation; plan for learning; teacher research and collaboration; developing a monitoring plan and strategy; and accessing and using resources. Time is allowed for preparation for the home task and feedback on the home task. Trainer's supplements, including alternative activities, follow. Masters for all handouts and transparencies needed in the sessions are provided. One of the seven supplementary readings for the sessions is a list of 63 references. (YLB)
