Proceedings: Conference on Compensatory/Remedial Education, April 3 and 4, 1975. Occasional Paper No. 24.
Larson, Howard B., Ed.; Olswang, Steven G., Ed.
The intent of this annual conference is to provide a medium of exchange for practitioners in the field, with each person acting as a resource person for the others. To provide topical focuses, two presentations were made: Dr. Joan Roloff discussed "The Place of the Learning Center in Remedial/Compensatory Education in Community Colleges," and Dr. Henry Fea discussed "The Affective Component of Study." Dr. Roloff typifies the new wave of remedial instruction, personalization of teaching. The concept of incorporation of the classroom setting with individualized instruction i n the learning center, utilizing the discipline instructor, as well as the specialist, widens the impact of educational aid available to the student. Dr. Fea examines six affective elements of study which yield evidence that the affective component may be more potent than the cognitive component. His categorizations include: the unfinished task, busy work, remebering and forgetting, time planning, rationalization, and personalization of material. The majority of the conference was planned as group discussion with four designated topics: reading, mathematics/science, English, and developmental centers. Two paper s are included on reading. The first discusses content areas and informal diagnosis of level of reading attainment, and the second provides a confluent reading/writing fundamentals curriculum. (NHM)
