Remediating Dyspedagogia: Adapting Materials and Strategies to Learners' Needs.
Ineffective teaching strategies plague teachers of learning disabled (LD) students just as ineffective learning strategies interfere with the performance of LD students. As a remediation for ineffective teaching, or dyspedagogia, the paper suggests the use of the LOAD procedure. LOAD is an acronym for the terms of Learning, Operation, Application, and Data Management which provide a systematic framework for teaching students with learning problems. A parallel is drawn between the role of the teacher of LD students and that of a computer programmer in that both must carefully follow predetermined steps in order to reach their goal. Examples of each step in the procedure are offered. (Author/CL)
