Ideas and Activities for Educators.
Bessant, Helen P., Ed.
Provided for teachers are 11 brief articles on current ideology relevant to the education of handicapped and non-handicapped children. The first five papers deal with the following topics: attempts to increase the effectiveness of the educational system (such as mainstreaming); alternative models for delivery of services to the mildly handicapped (such as the Cascade System); the role of affect and cognition in curriculum; and societal factors affecting the future of education (such as inflation). Presented in seven articles are specific guides to the teacher regarding advocacy for normalized education of exceptional children, the ideas of J. Piaget, diagnosis of learning problems, listening to children, the role of mathematics, improvement of a child's self-concept, and the importance of physical activities for emotionally disturbed children.
