TENTATIVE CURRICULUM GUIDE FOR AN RL PROGRAM, ENGLISH.
Grossmont Union High School District, CA.
A CURRICULUM GUIDE FOR THE SLOW LEARNER IS PRESENTED. AREAS OF CONCENTRATION ARE--(1) IDENTIFICATION AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SLOW LEARNER, (2) DISCOVERY AND DEVELOPMENT OF AVAILABLE MATERIALS AND SUITABLE METHODS, AND (3) DEVELOPMENT OF POSSIBLE CLASSROOM UNITS AND EVALUATION PROCEDURES FOR THE RL PROGRAM. IN TEACHING THE SLOW LEARNER, LITTLE USE SHOULD BE MADE OF READING AND BOOK STUDY. THESE PUPILS HAVE TROUBLE IN DEFINING, DISTINGUISHING, ANALYZING AND MEMORIZING, ARE LOW IN ACHIEVEMENT, DOMINANCE, IMAGINATION, AND CURIOSITY, AND CANNOT BE PRESSURED. THEY SHOULD BE TAUGHT WITH PICTURES, CHARTS, AND THINGS THEY CAN HANDLE. EMPHASIS SHOULD BE PLACED ON READING MODERN LITERATURE AND MAGAZINES RELATED TO STUDENT INTEREST AND NEEDS. CURRENT EVENTS SHOULD BE EMPHASIZED IN SOCIAL STUDIES. A REGULAR CLASS PROCEDURE SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED, WITH ACTIVITIES OF SHORT DURATION. UNITS SHOULD LEAD TO ORAL AND, OR, WRITTEN EXERCISES. SUGGESTED UNITS ARE--ORIENTATION, READING AND WRITING PLACEMENT, WRITING FORM, STUDY-SKILLS, USE OF THE LIBRARY, REFERENCE MATERIALS, BUILDING THE SENTENCE, SPELLING, THE DICTIONARY, CHOOSING A VOCATION, APPLYING FOR A JOB, THE INTERVIEW, USE OF THE TELEPHONE, THE SIMPLE BUSINESS REPORT. SECOND SEMESTER FOCUSES ON PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, UNIT TOPICS INCLUDE ATTITUDES, HOBBIES, PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT, COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITIES, PARENT-STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS, PREJUDICE, AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A HOME. EXTENSIVE INSTRUCTIONS ARE GIVEN FOR THE TEACHING OF WRITING, SPELLING, READING, ORAL PRESENTATION, STUDY SKILLS, AND ORIENTATION UNITS. AN INEXPENSIVE METHOD OF UTILIZING TEACHER-CREATED PROGRAMED MATERIALS IS PROPOSED.
