Teaching the Learning Disabled (Episode 6): Multisensory Social Studies
Explore the reconstructive elaborations model to show how various skills can be adopted and mastered so that the LD student can confidently and successfully become involved in social studies.
Multisensory Social Studies follows Dr. Mastropieri, a specialist in strategies for teaching exceptional students. By using the reconstructive elaboration model, content area information becomes more meaningful, familiar and concrete and, therefore, more memorable and ready for use in the regular classroom.
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 sixth 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.
