Teaching Students To Take Control of Their Learning.
Long, Patricia; Bowen, Jean
This brief paper suggests ways of involving students with learning disabilities and/or attention deficits in their own learning, with a systematic program intended to build self-understanding and a healthy internal locus of control. The program is based on the concept of multiple intelligences and the many different ways in which students and their peers are intelligent. The paper suggests that the program be integrated into the health science curriculum and be reinforced in all other academic subjects. (DB)
