Table of Contents
This Study Guide is designed to enhance your understanding of ADD/ADHD Alternatives in the Classroom, an ASCD book published in December 1999, by helping you make connections between the text and the classroom, school, or district in which you work. Written by Thomas Armstrong, this book shows how the ADD/ADHD paradigm is a limited and artificial way of viewing children who have difficulties with attention and behavior.
You can use this Study Guide before or after you have read the book, or as you finish each chapter. If you have not read the book already, you may wish to scan the Guide very quickly and highlight questions and instructions that are designed to prompt your thinking prior to your reading the text material carefully. The study questions provided are not meant to cover all aspects of the book but, rather, to address selected ideas we thought might warrant further reflection.
Most of the questions in this Study Guide are ones you can think about on your own. But you might also consider pairing with another colleague, or forming a group of people who have read (or are reading) ADD/ADHD Alternatives in the Classroom.
ADD/ADHD Alternatives in the Classroom was written by Thomas Armstrong. This 126-page, 6" x 9" book (ISBN 0-87120-359-6) is available from ASCD for $9.95 (ASCD member) and $11.95 (nonmember). Copyright 1999 by Thomas Armstrong. To order a copy, call ASCD at 1-800-933-2723 (in Virginia 1-703-578-9600) and press 2 for the Service Center. Or buy the book from ASCD's Online Store.
