The Trainable Child: Preparation for Life.
Walden, S. Bernie; And Others
Designed to be used in an inservice training program for teachers of trainable mentally retarded children, the manual begins with a discussion of the home as a resource and of ways in which parents, as part of a Teacher-Parent Team, can contribute to the learning of their children. In the major section of the manual, the statement of curriculum goals in the areas of social-emotional, academic, vocational, and enrichment objectives is accompanied by activities which can be used in the classroom to accomplish the objectives and activities which the teacher can suggest that parents use as home reinforcement. Suggestions for classroom planning and management are given. Appended is a chart of selected instructional materials for use with TMRs which indicates for each item whether it is self-instructing, self-correcting, multi-purpose, and reusable. A list of sources for these and other instructional materials follows. (KW)
