Workshop Training Kits. Volume II.
Ward, Ted; And Others
Presented in the second of a two volume series are six workshop training kits for development of teacher skills to be used with learning disabled (LD) children. The first section of each kit contains a leader's guide which gives activity, objectives, teacher prerequisites, time required, materials needed, step-by-step procedures, a discussion guide, and an evaluation form. The second part of each kit (for the trainee) contains master copies of materials for the activity, worksheets, a content evaluation form, a workshop evaluation form, and supplementary information. Explained in the kits are the following workshop activities: a three part educational planning and decision making activity focusing on responsibility, placement, and programing; a learning disability planning priorities game requiring the diagnostic/prescriptive process; polar algebra, an activity which simulates a learning difficulty and provides an opportunity for selection of appropriate remediation; a competitive analogy game; an LD team card game involving diagnostic terms, symptomology, and remedial strategies; and an activity which requires simulation of three different forms of sensory deprivation for sensitization to needs of handicapped children. Approximately 180 bibliographical references on learning disabilities are given which include source and price for professional references, journals, idea books for teachers, and instructional materials.
