Clothing Construction: An Instructional Package with Adaptations for Visually Impaired Individuals.
Crawford, Glinda B.; And Others
Developed for the home economics teacher of mainstreamed visually impaired students, this guide provides clothing instruction lesson plans for the junior high level. First, teacher guidelines are given, including characteristics of the visually impaired, orienting such students to the classroom, orienting class members to the visually impaired, suggestions for effective teaching, and sources of assistance such as reading materials, organizations, and agencies. Next, the clothing instruction unit objectives and generalizations are given, followed by nine lesson plans. The topics of the lessons are selecting small sewing equipment; getting to know the sewing machine, caring for and operating the sewing machine; preparing the machine for sewing; fabric selection and terminology; using a commercial pattern; laying out and cutting out a pattern; and basic clothing construction. Each lesson includes objectives and generalizations, a pre- and posttest with an answer key, a list of learning activities (teacher lecture-demonstration, information sheets designed for all students and some especially for the blind, worksheets and worksheet keys, games), suggested films, books, kits and other resources, and special notes to the teacher for presenting the lessons to visually impaired students. Concluding the package is a list of addresses for resource material and a bibliography which includes indication of availability in large type, braille, or record. (This package is one of a series of home economics instructional packages for use with the Visually Impaired. See note.) (JH)
