Teaching the Learning Disabled (Episode 3): Organizing Time, Materials and Information
Examine essential thinking tools that will help the LD student cope with note-taking, classroom listening, studying and completing homework — usually insurmountable tasks.
Connie Slover Burkhalter, Ed.M., of Dallas' Scottish Rite Dyslexia Center tells why study skills need to be organized and takes the viewer one step at a time through procedures that will help break old habits and build effective, new ways to learn. We know what the student needs to know — this tells how they can do it.
The series was produced with outstanding master teachers in Special Education to help professionals working with kindergarten through adults teach LD students across the curriculum. The tapes provide a good in-service for teachers who have mainstreamed LD students in their classroom and are excellent for programming with parent groups.
This is the third video of Teaching the Learning Disabled Video Program, a series of eight videos. Topics include dealing with motivation, organization, reading concepts, math strategies, multisensory learning techniques and science.
Available in DVD format.
