Handbook of Alternative Teaching Techniques.
Desmarais, Diane; Tripp, Ralph
This handbook was designed for educators of adults at varied levels with varying needs. The techniques discussed in the guide can be used in groups, pairs, or individually. The booklet contains two sections: (1) a brief review of different learning styles and the types of activities that work well for each, including visual, auditory, multisensory, and undisciplined learners; and (2) a number of techniques for teachers to consider. Each of the techniques is presented in a format that describes the method, its possible uses, and reasons for using it. Most of the techniques are adaptable to any level. Visual illustration, mapping, auditory and oral activities, and tactile illustration are the techniques suggested. (KC)
