Project RAISE. Title IV-C. How-to Manual.
Nylander, Nikki; Ludden, Jinny
This manual for parents and teachers provides an appropriate teaching curriculum for use with trainable mentally retarded adults, age eighteen to twenty-one years. It provides first a course outline based on five knowledge areas: health, nutrition, home maintenance, basic consumerism, and job readiness. Other contents include tests, objectives, task sequencing, and knowledge area modules. Pretests, also intended for use as checkups and posttests, are correlated to the knowledge areas. In most cases they are nonverbal and evaluated by a motor activity. The objectives for each area are in a sequential order which directly correlates to the pretest, since pretest scores indicate accomplishment of objectives. A scoring key to the objectives is provided. Task sequencing is given for those areas needing a definite order of events to consistently teach the task. Each of the five knowledge area modules is divided into packets. The format for each packet includes one or all of the following: contents, necessary materials, construction, and teaching instructions. Some required materials are not provided. A bibliography lists these materials and others (with their sources) used in developing and implementing the curriculum. (YLB)
