A Model of the Culturally Disadvantaged.
Publicover, Robert G.
USU Special Educator, v2 n1 p18-26 Winter 1967
Because it is felt that a conceptual framework for teaching disadvantaged students should be derived from an educational rather than a sociological viewpoint, the model which is offered is based on the student's learning deficiencies. This model focuses the teacher's attention on the learning situation and suggests the kind of action which is needed to deal with the school performance of the disadvantaged student. Within this pedagogically oriented model, the teacher would seek to ascertain why the child is not learning well. Diagnosis would help in providing information on the factors impeding learning and would pinpoint the handicap which is most disabling to the learning process. After categorizing the child in terms of his shortcoming, the next step would be to determine the appropriate remedial effort. Among disadvantaged children, language inadequacy is the most common learning deficiency, with "pure" cultural disadvantage being a residual factor to be approached as a separate issue. Selected annotated bibliography follows this discussion. (NH)
