Guidelines for Methods and Techniques of Teaching Disadvantaged Students.
Sheppard, N. Alan; Vaughn, D. Lanette
Recommended teaching techniques for instructing disadvantaged students are presented in this manual. A general definition of a disadvantaged student is given in the introduction, followed by a specific listing of characteristics which a student in the State of Virginia should exhibit in order to qualify for a special program for disadvantaged students in the State. Characteristics which make disadvantaged pupils difficult to teach are outlined; their strengths are also identified. Suggested positive approaches to teaching the disadvantaged are given, along with a listing of the qualities a teacher of the disadvantaged seems to need. Methods for selecting appropriate techniques for teaching the disadvantaged are examined, and the remainder of the manual is devoted to describing the use of twelve of these techniques and/or resources: Audiovisual aids, tape recordings, brainstorming, demonstrations, field trips, games, individualized instruction, peer teaching, project methods, resource centers, resource persons, and role-playing. A short bibliography is appended. (BL)
