Buksar, Alma; And Others
This manual was developed for use by personnel responsible for staff development in adapting curricula and improving instruction. It enables the trainer to help content area teachers accommodate a variety of students with different learning styles and capabilities. The model presented provides a process for assessing needs of students, adapting textbooks and materials, establishing classroom management procedures, and modifying tests and grading practices. The manual contains four training modules that address the areas of assessment, instruction, management, and evaluation. Each module includes a content analysis for the trainer, trainer directions and notes, activity ideas, and transparencies. The assessment module provides a process for identifying the learning styles of students in relation to the teaching styles of instructors. The instruction module provides strategies for adapting textbooks, materials, and curricula. The management module addresses classroom organization and behavior management problems. Finally, the evaluation module contains ideas for adapting tests and modifying grading procedures. A summary module allows participants to apply the adaptive model. (CL)
