Meyen, Edward L.; Carr, Donald L.
Designed for inservice training, the guide provides basic information from which teachers of the educable mentally retarded can develop their own instructional program in social studies. The focus is on developing respect for law and authority. Suggestions are made for both incidental and systematic teaching. Three starter units for teaching law and order to the educable mentally retarded treat safety for the primary age level, bike riding for the intermediate age level, and understanding the law for the advanced level. Each unit includes the following: selection of unit; sub-units; general objectives; core area activities; resource materials; vocabulary; and lesson plans consisting of objectives, activities, resource materials, and an experience chart. The appendix provides 31 pages of sketches for use on bulletin boards or for making overhead projector transparencies. Forms for teacher evaluation of the guide are included. (LE)
