Serving Special Needs Populations: The Disadvantaged. A Compilation of Papers Presented in a Workshop (Greensboro, North Carolina, July 21-August 7, 1980).
Farmer, Edgar I., Ed.; Smith, Ronald O., Ed.
This monograph contains seven papers from a workshop for pre- and in-service administrators and teachers serving special needs students. In "Identification Factors and Criteria for Determining Disadvantaged: Definition of Terms" Edgar I. Farmer, Sr., sets workshop parameters and defines terms. Royce Bland, in "Suggested Techniques for Handling Discipline Problems," suggests that appropriate motivational techniques and respect for the student help alleviate discipline problems. In "Self-Esteem--An Alternative to Substance Abuse" Yvette P. Bogan chronicles behavior of a young female drug abuser as she develops a more positive self-image. She postulates that drug abuse is the result of a poor self-image. In "Working with Handicapped Students Who are Disadvantaged" Arlington Chisman reviews some exercises that may be useful to teachers of handicapped students. Robert B. Pyle, in "Performance-Based Individualized Instruction to Motivate Special Needs Students," offers practical advice for establishing a performance-based program. Frederick G. Welch suggests six effective techniques for teachers to motivate disadvantaged students ("Motivating the Disadvantaged Youth"). "Contemporary Legal Issues and How They Impact upon the Educator," by David G. Carter, is an extensive look at this area of concern. Appendixes include discipline and counseling techniques. (YLB)
