The Slow Learner in Mathematics. NCTM Yearbook 35.
Lowry, William C., Ed.
The first part of this yearbook treats the characteristics and needs of the slow learner, the research literature, behavioral objectives, and the creation of a favorable learning environment. The second part, meant to provide more specific help for the classroom teacher, deals with teaching techniques, multisensory aids and activities, mathematics laboratories, and diagnostic-prescriptive procedures. The third part covers classroom management and school administration, curriculum for slow learners, and program descriptions for in-service teacher education. Two appendices present activities, games, applications, and sample lessons that have been found to be effective with slow learners. (Author/DT)
