How to Teach Self-Instruction of Job Skills. Innovations: Aamr Research to Practice Series, Number 2 by Martin Agran( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Individuals with significant disabilities who have been trained to enter independent employment often depend too much on their job coaches. This guide describes strategies to enhance the problem-solving skills of learners with mental retardation by teaching them to use self-instruction or self-directed verbal commands. It details procedures for teaching self-instruction and provides sample scripts for common tasks. An introductory chapter discusses the value of self-instruction and identifies principles on which the recommended strategies are based. Chapter 2 describes the basic self-instructional training package, which includes: (1) a task analysis of the skill to be taught; (2) training sequences of self-instruction, verbal instructions, modeling, behavioral rehearsal, corrective feedback, and praise; and (3) procedures to monitor performance. Chapter 3 describes modifications of the basic package to include booster training, verbal labeling, and/or a combination of self-instructional training and one or more self-management strategies. Chapter 4 addresses principles of teaching self-instructional techniques in groups, and chapter 5 considers peer-delivered self-instructional training. The final chapter stresses the use of self-instruction to help students with mental retardation acquire, maintain, and generalize work behaviors. Sample training scripts are appended.

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book describes a set of instructional methods called student-directed learning strategies, which combine effective instructional strategies to promote student learning in inclusive environments with a means to promote and enhance active student involvement in learning. The first chapter identifies student-directed learning strategies and discusses the advantages of student-directed learning. The following chapters provide specific, detailed, and step-by-step information about implementing student-directed learning strategies. Chapter 2 provides an overview of the use of antecedent cue regulation and picture cue procedures to give students with disabilities the additional cues they might need to initiate desired behavior. Chapter 3 describes basic steps in teaching self-instruction skills that enable students verbally to direct their own behavior. Chapter 4 discusses self-monitoring to enable students to track their progress toward desired goals and outcomes. Chapter 5 examines self-evaluation and self-reinforcement strategies. Chapter 6 provides a brief recap of the strategies described and identifies how they can promote learning, when and how to combine strategies, and the role of these strategies in promoting access to the general curriculum. Chapters include student "snapshots" to illustrate the need for student-directed learning strategies. Appendices include blank forms and a list of resources on student-directed learning strategies.
