In his book, The Myth of Laziness, Mel Levine contends that many students who appear "lazy" may, in reality, possess one or more of several different types of output difficulties including motor dysfunction, memory failure, lack of mental energy, problems with production controls, language dysfunction, lack of ideation and disorganization. Students will learn ways to diagnosis these output difficulties and provide researched based recommendations to be used in Intervention Plans.
This course will focus on the nature of Bullying and what it entails. It will also help bring to view the emotional needs of the one who is being bullied. Finally, in an area that is not often addressed, the emotional make-up, problems and needs of the one who bullies will be explored.
This is an online course. The instructors will closely monitor student participation through log on time, the posting of assignments, and responding to teacher and student postings. Students can access the on-line class 24 hours per day from their computer. This will be a self paced class.
