Exploring Children's Strengths: A Planning Strategy for Disabled Readers.
Dworkin, Nancy
Measuring the exchange process between teacher and child, a neglected but necessary pursuit, is dependent upon the identification of the behavior system through which information is exchanged and upon the instrumentation used for measuring that exchange. This paper describes an instructional strategy, intended for use with disabled readers, in which process variables may be distinguished. Instruction involves the identification of the child's learning strengths and weaknesses, the use of success-oriented diagnostic procedures, the selection of curriculum task objectives and attendant criteria for success, the review of appropriate teaching techniques, the development of a cueing system in which the teacher can signal feedback, and the institution of appropriate reinforcement and feedback schedules. The present concern of this strategy is to recast educational procedures and processes so that data about the educational exchange process can be used both in measures of student progress and in curriculum design.
