Overcoming the Barriers to Learning Faced by Hyperactive Students in the Department of English Benson Idahosa University, Benin City
Inegbeboh, Bridget O.
Education, v129 n1 p147-153 Fall 2008
Hyperactive students belong to "special group of students" whom VIHEP (March 1, 2004) describes as "those students who experience difficulty with their learning due to physical, psychological, health, school and/or environmental factors." These include gifted and talented students who deserve Special Needs Education. They require the special attention of the lecturer, the department, the university and the nation. Emily and Doyin are two gifted students who have been identified in the 200 level class of English in Benson Idahosa University, through some characteristics they exhibit. The two students have had their barriers to learning overcome and they are now able to adapt and enjoy their studies due to our intervention. It is recommended that the university stocks the departmental library with more varieties of voluminous novels in English and many other advanced literary works and advanced books that teach English as a second language. A writers club should be formed as a matter of urgency. The university should make available a well stocked main library with books for gifted and other students. The university should make available more computers in the information and technology centre and acquire a faster state-of-the-art internet server to serve the internet services and improve the internet services rendered to staff and students.
