Emphasizing social and economic growth of the educable retarded secondary student, provision is made for lesson and unit plans which give information on vocational and educational opportunities and which develop habits, attitudes and skills necessary for the individual to hold a job. The basic skills to be taught, books and materials useful in presentations, and suggestions and teaching aids for enrichment are given for grades 10, 11, and 12. Included in the sequential social studies units are American history and government, job skills, driver training, map skills and world geography. Activities are suggested for each grade in functional English, functional mathematics, and functional science. Grade 10 includes a unit on home economic skills with emphasis on human development and family, food and nutrition, housing, and textiles and clothing. Units for Grade 12 include a pre-vocational orientation which prepares the student for employment interviews, job skills and work attitudes. An appendix gives a dictionary of vocational vocabulary along with sample forms of employment applications, social security cards, wage comparisons for various occupations, and checking account statements.
