The Teacher's Approach to the Study of the Disabled Reader, A Homeopathic Concept.
McGinnis, Dorothy J.
Classroom treatment for the disabled reader in which the child is permitted to make reading errors and then to develop control over them is described. Homeopathic treatment emphasizes meeting the child's reading needs as they develop rather than determining causal factors and providing drastic remediation. A goal-oriented process of instruction is described in which the teacher stimulates, informs, and guides her pupils in accomplishing projects and attaining individual goals. A fifth-grade project in which each child prepares his own books (writing, illustating, and binding) illustrates the implementation of this concept. Three factors identified by research which influence learning effectiveness are related: intrinsic motivation, careful material selection, and meaningful practice. References are included. (CM)
