Educating the Child Who is Different.
Intended for both parents and teachers, the book discusses the education of mentally retarded children. Part 1 considers the relationship of the teacher to the retarded child and his family, how educators can help parents, the importance of cooperation between parents and teachers, characteristics of moderately retarded children, and the question of placement in residential or day schools. Part 2, after discussing whether the school should educate or train, how the children are to be taught, and what they should learn, deals with the following curriculum areas: play, music and rhythm, drawing and painting, manual arts, number concepts and calculating, reading, and writing. Special attention is given to the wisdom of teaching academic skills, the learning environment, and religious education. (DF)
