Implementing a Collaborative Consultation Model for Learning Disabled and At-Risk Students in Grade 9.
Levine, Esther Zager
This practicum sought to improve the education of six learning-disabled and five at-risk ninth-grade students in English, science, and social studies classes, by implementing a collaborative consultation model which involved having individual teachers work collaboratively with a resource room teacher. Targeted students were given the O'Brien Learning Channel Reference Test. Collaborating teachers completed the Modified Meyers-Briggs Test to determine their teaching style, analyzed learning styles of target students, completed curriculum-based assessments, prioritized the skills needed by students, conducted strategy intervention teaching, reinforced the strategies, learned about and implemented behavioral interventions, and evaluated student progress. The project resulted in improved teaching and learning through analysis of teaching style and learner needs and creation of strategies to meet those needs. Appendices contain forms and survey results. (Approximately 60 references) (JDD)
