Hearing Impairment: Accepting Individual Differences [and] Can You Hear Me?
Cohen, Shirley; And Others
The AID (Accepting Individual Differences) curriculum guide, the second in a series of five manuals, attempts to foster acceptance and respect for differences, as exemplified by disabilities. The manual presents activities on hearing impairments (HI) for instructors' personal learning, and lesson plans for teaching students in kindergarten through grade 3. Suggested for personal learning experiences by instructors are simulation, reading, and observation experiences, as well as a conference with a teacher of HI students, and use of resources. Activities for kindergarten through grade 3 students are presented in five lesson plans on the theme, "Although we are different, we like each other." The lesson plans usually are arranged by theme, specific objectives, activities (such as listening to records played at low volume), materials, literature for students, a discussion guide, and directions for story time. Twelve activities are noted for use with more advanced students based on the student workbook, "Can You Hear Me?", which is included with this document. Three questions that students might ask are posed and answered. A reference section lists approximately 14 books, catalogs, and pamphlets; two films; two records; and two free materials. (MC)
