Middle School Curriculum for Visually Impaired Students.
Eaves, Ronald C.; McLaughlin, Phillip J.
The curriculum on academic programing is intended to be a resource, subject to updating as necessary, for education of blind and partially sighted middle school students at the Georgia Academy for the Blind. Information about core skills in teaching is presented in the first four chapters with the following titles: "Introduction to Academic Programming,""Task Aanlysis and the Development of Taxonomies of Goals and Objectives,""Assessment in Academic Programs," and "Selection and Use of Instructional Strategies and Materials." Next, the six basic curriculum domains are covered with chapters on arithmetic, language arts, reading, health, science, and social studies. Each of the six curriculum chapters includes a record sheet and sections on: (1) broad skills, enabling skills, and specific skills; (2) taxonomy of goals and objectives; and (3) instructional strategies (such as use of dictionary lesson plans for language arts, or a water pollution lesson plan for science). Worksheets, sample tests, and questions for units are also included for each curriculum domain. (MC)
