Teaching Strategies for Students with Attention Deficit Disorder
MetadataShow full item record
Students diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder are often considered to be "high-risk" students. This does not necessarily have to be the case. Through effort, by both teacher and student, and implementing the correct combination of teaching methods, these students can excel in a world where they are frequently believed to fall behind. I student taught at Parchment High School, in Parchment Michigan during the winter of2000, and had the opportunity to instruct a number of ADD students. This paper will examine my experiences with students diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder at Parchment High School and what I learned from them. It also entails research on the topic, focusing on teaching methods that can be used to help these students reach their full potential.
