Project C.H.A.N.G.E.: Concepts of Handicaps and Attitudes Need Guidance and Education. Intermediate Curriculum [4-6].
Smith, M. Sherry; And Others
The document contains the curriculum guides for Grades 4, 5, and 6 developed by Project CHANGE (Concepts of Handicaps and Attitudes Need Guidance and Education), a curriculum designed to improve children's attitudes toward the disabled. The curriculum for Grade 4 focuses on acceptance of self and others (handicapped and nonhandicapped), physiology of the eye, blindness, physiology of the endocrine system; for Grade 5--acceptance of self and others, physiology of the ear, deafness, physiology of the oral mechanism, and speech impairments; for Grade 6--acceptance of self and others, physiology of the central nervous system, epilepsy, basic anatomy, and physical handicaps. Lessons typically include ingenuity exercises; lecture; simulation activities; use of filmstrips, movies, and books; class discussion; and guest speakers (usually disabled persons). Units at each grade level are preceded by a unit outline which identifies learning objectives and concepts. Lesson plans are organized to include information on activity name, learning objective, materials needed, and teaching procedure. Worksheets and handouts appropriate for reproduction are provided when called for in the lesson plans. (DB)
