A Neuropsychological Consultation Model Designed To Foster Wholebrain and Cognitive Style-Responsive Instruction for "At Risk" Elementary School Students.
Craney, Thomas J.
The practicum was designed to establish a staff development program to help teachers to systematically employ whole-brain and responsive instructional approaches with "at risk" students and to provide the theoretical/conceptual, practical, and experiential knowledge base necessary for program development incorporating cognitive styles. The actual practicum audience was the full teaching staffs of 4 elementary schools, involving more than 70 educators. The practicum: (1) provided target individuals with training in basic neuroscience; (2) promoted an understanding of learning/cognitive styles within the instructional context of the classroom, through a styles self-analysis process; (3) helped teachers develop and employ lessons, instructional strategies, and materials that were responsive to "at risk" students; and (4) provided the knowledge base necessary for cognitive styles program development. The practicum included inservice programming for teachers and support staff, individual cognitive style/preference profiling, coaching, lesson plan development and teaching, and evaluation. Practicum evaluation indicated positive results. Seventeen appendices include support material, evaluation instruments and participant responses. (JDD)
