COURSE OF STUDY AND CURRICULUM GUIDE FOR TEACHERS OF THE EDUCABLE MENTALLY RETARDED.
Santa Cruz County Superintendent of Schools, CA.
CHILDREN WITH RETARDED MENTAL DEVELOPMENT WHO ARE EDUCABLE BUT UNABLE SUCESSFULLY TO PROFIT FROM THE REGULAR CLASSROOM ARE PROVIDED WITH SPECIAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS DESIGNED FOR THEIR NEEDS. THE SATISFACTION OF THESE PARTICULAR NEEDS DEPENDS UPON THE PROVISION FOR EXPERIENCES WHICH ENABLE THE INDIVIDUAL TO DEVELOP A CONCEPT OF SELF WHICH IS REALISTIC, SECURE, ADEQUATE, AND VALUABLE TO HIMSELF AND OTHERS. FOR THE EDUCATOR, ALL CHARACTERISTICS ASSOCIATED WITH THE EDUCABLE MENTALLY RETARDED MUST BE RECOGNIZED AS TYPICAL OF THE POPULATION AS A WHOLE AND DIFFERING IN DEGREE RATHER THAN IN KIND. TO AID THE TEACHER OF EDUCABLE MENTALLY RETARDED CHILDREN IN TRYING TO MEET THE SPECIAL NEEDS OF HER PUPILS, CURRICULUM GUIDES ARE PRESENTED IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS--SOCIAL STUDIES, HEALTH AND SAFETY, LANGUAGE ARTS, PHYSICAL EDUCATION, ARITHMETIC, PRACTICAL AND HOME ARTS, ART AND MUSIC, AND SCIENCE. THE GUIDES ARE ORGANIZED IN CHART FORM WITH SPECIFIC ACTIVITIES IN EACH AREA ARRANGED SEPARATELY FOR THE PRIMARY, INTERMEDIATE, AND ADVANCED LEVELS. IN ADDITION TO THE CHARTS OF THE COURSE OF STUDY, FURTHER GUIDES PRESENT SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES WHICH INVOLVE THE DEVELOPMENT OF SKILLS IN TWO OR MORE SUBJECT AREAS. THESE ACTIVITY GUIDES ARE ALSO ARRANGED SEPARATELY FOR THE THREE LEVELS OF ACHIEVEMENT. THE CURRICULUM HANDBOOK CONCLUDES WITH A LIST OF USEFUL INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS AND RESOURCES INCLUDING BOOKS, FILMS, RECORDS, CHARTS, AND PERIODICALS.
