Controlled Rage: An Overlooked Cause of Remediation Failure.
Ungerleider, Dorothy
Experiences of an individual working with illiterate delinquents are related. It is suggested that controlled rage as a concomitant to learning failure is a potential source of school difficulty as well as social violence. A case of a ninth-grader with reading problems whose IQ had steadily decreased with age is cited. The schools' unsuccessful efforts with the student, his family's frustrations, and his own deep humiliation at being unable to read are examined. Suggestions are made for teachers to combat remediation failure, including listening differently, seeking the student's collaboration, and sharing personal experiences and feelings with students.
