Academic Programming in the Re-Education School.
Cantrell, Mary Lynn
Presented are 12 programed instruction exercises in writing letters of the alphabet, spelling words, addition, numeral-number association, subtraction, color words chart, answering basic questions about stories, sentences, paragraphs, and paragraph titles for elementary school children who demonstrate a learning disability and/or behavior problem. Three assumptions behind the programing of the 12 exercises are said to be that academic skills are important for the children, that efficient instruction is needed, and that learning is assumed to be an individual experience. The programing follows principles of behavior change, operant conditioning, and positive reinforcement. (For two related pamphlets, see EC 041 167-8.) (CB)
