We're Sold. Strategies for Overcoming Learning Differences. A Section 353 Training Project.
Dean, Karen; And Others
This document contains three guides for facilitating the three workshops. The guides resulted from a project conducted in Pinellas County, Florida, Public Schools to produce a comprehensive, 18-hour training program and follow-up services for administrators, teachers, and tutors working with adults with learning disabilities (LD) in literacy programs. The program is designed to increase teacher and tutor awareness and effectiveness in providing instruction to adults who have, or suspect they have, learning disabilities. A survey showed that 91 percent of the 98 adult basic education/general educational development (ABE/GED) teachers in the county believed that many of their students had learning disabilities and that the teachers would like more information so that they could improve the instruction of LD students. Each of the workshops focuses on different topics: (1) overview and recognition of learning disabilities; (2) language strategies; and (3) mathematics strategies. Each guide consists of a workshop agenda; workshop preparation instructions; step-by-step instructions for each workshop agenda item; handout, transparency, and flipchart masters; pre- and posttest masters; and workshop follow-up memoranda. A list of 33 agencies, organizations, materials sources, and materials is included. (KC)
