LD Curriculum Models: Instructional Module. (An Instructional Module for Preservice or Inservice Training of Regular Secondary Educators).
Reetz, Linda J.; Hoover, John H.
Intended for use in college-level secondary education methods courses, the module describes various curriculum models for teaching learning disabled students by means of lecture notes (in text form), an annotated bibliography, and overhead masters. The introduction identifies the five models considered: (1) basic skills training, (2) tutorial, (3) functional skills training, (4) work study, and (5) strategies training. Each model is presented in terms of a description, a rationale, effectiveness information, and implications for secondary teachers. Following the model discussions, curriculum material modifications (e.g., combining standard text with other multisensory instructional materials) are considered. Finally, the regular education/special education initiative is discussed with emphasis on its impact on regular secondary-level teachers. Also provided are 14 references and 13 overhead masters. An additional annotated bibliography includes 28 references with abstracts. (DB)
