Individualizing Language Strategies Using CONSULT-I.
Newman, Anabel P.; Metz, Elizabeth
This handbook offers suggestions for implementing actions (termed variously in other settings as treatments, interventions, methods, techniques, strategies or activities) recommended for individual learners by CONSULT-I (R), a computer program created by James Fattu and Edward Patrick. Application of the program described in the handbook was under development at the Reading Practicum Center at Indiana University beginning in 1983. Suitable for learners of all ages, the recommendations in the booklet are especially tailored for K-12 learners and should be used to build a remedial language program based on a particular learner's characteristics, needs, and interests. Many of the actions described in the booklet appear in more than one category. Sections of the booklet are: Comprehension; Functional Language; Games; Interest; Language Experience; Motivation; Self-Concept Module; and Study Skills. Contains 14 references. Sample Informal Interest Inventories for grades 1-6, 7-12, and for adults are attached. (RS)
