Individualized Instructional Materials for Special Needs Students in Junior High School Home Economics Programs.
Whiteford, Emma B.
As a part of the general project investigating how home economics teachers can adapt their teaching methods and materials to the special needs students, this individualized instructional guide is designed to provide practical information, suggestions, and guidance for the classroom teacher. Following a brief description of special needs students, individualized instruction, and suggestions for planning a classroom program, two individualized units of study are presented. The first unit, meeting nutritional requirements for food and water, focuses on six key nutritional requirements: (1) carbohydrates, (2) water, (3) minerals, (4) vitamins, (5) fats, and (6) proteins. For each objective there are suggested activities to be used in the learning center. Student instructional materials for each activity are included. The second unit, enhancing the self-image, focuses on three areas: personal care, consideration of others, and lasting impressions. Specific student activity cards are presented for each area, along with teacher guidelines for using the activity cards. (LRA)
