This course of study for the slow-learner is intended to help the student understand his own worth and potential for growth, to improve his adjustments to his environment through better understanding and communication, and to show him the value of good work habits and participation in recreational and cultural activities. Introductory sections present objectives, tips for teachers, a time-allotment schedule, and suggested course materials. The bulk of the publication consists of eight units dealing with "Knowing Myself,""Getting the Most Out of School,""Setting the Stage for Independent Study,""Learning About Communication,""Participating in Community Life,""Developing New Concepts of Work,""Learning How to Use Leisure Time," and "Summing Up." Two special units consider the pleasures of reading a whole book, and spelling and vocabulary. A sample lesson plan for the presentation of a reading assignment is also included. (LH)
