Teachers' Beliefs About LD Students.
Thurlow, Martha L.; Ysseldyke, James
A national sample of 127 elementary and secondary teachers of learning disabled (LD) students completed surveys on the characteristics of LD students and the instructional procedures that work with them. Responses revealed extreme variability in the teachers' beliefs about LD students and effective instructional approaches. Further, few differences were found in the beliefs of teachers with 1 to 2 years of special education teaching experience as compared to beliefs of teachers with 10 or more years of special education teaching experience. Responses further indicated a lack of confidence in the teachers' contributions to LD students. (Author/CL)
