Learning Problems in the Classroom; Prevention and Remediation.
Frostig, Marianne; Maslow, Phyllis
This book represents an attempt to summarize those ideas, opinions, and facts that are influential in education and to compare and evaluate them on the basis of present-day knowledge and the author's personal experiences in the classroom. Part 1 examines the causes of learning difficulties, applications of neurophysiologic research, and the teaching of economically disadvantaged children. Part 2 discusses psychological theories for instruction, behavior modification, the humanistic point of view, psychoanalytic thought and its application, and cognitive developmental concepts. Part 3 is concerned with child development and education, evaluation, and programing. Part 4 discusses movement education and its importance, visual-perceptual abilities, auditory perception, developing language abilities, and the higher cognitive functions. Part 5 discusses problems in teaching beginning mathematics, matching tasks and ability patterns in teaching reading, and teaching handwriting. (WR)
