The Challenge to Conventional Assessment and Teaching Methods of Hearing Impaired Learners by Reuven Feuerstein's Theory and the Learning Potential Assessment Device. Draft.
Gill, Wanda E.
The paper reviews research on severe and profound hearing loss and notes implications for hearing impaired students of instrumental enrichment (IE), a cognitive learning approach featuring metacognition. The development of IE by R. Feuerstein is traced to initial work with disadvantaged groups who emigrated to Israel. Noted are such characteristics of IE as bridging exercises to promote transfer of skills to real life situations and content-free materials. IE goals are listed, including correcting deficient cognitive functions, developing motivation to work on a task because of the nature of the task and its mastery, and helping slow performers change attitudes toward themselves. A functional listing of program characteristics developed by R. Feuerstein is appended as is a brief description of the application of the model at Gallaudet College. A seven-page reference list concludes the document. (CL)
