Social and Community Skills: A Curriculum Guide for the Handicapped.
Gravatt, Arthur E.; And Others
The development of culturally acceptable social and community skills is prerequisite to effective participation in the world of work. This guide was developed to assist teachers of the mentally handicapped who are often deficient in perceiving what is socially acceptable and therefore require special assistance in developing social awareness. Five curriculum units explore the student's self-concept in relation to others, community, peers, family, and adulthood. Each unit includes multiple educational objectives with accompanying learning experiences, teaching methods and resources, and evaluation techniques. An entire section is devoted to a variety of teaching methods for use with the mentally handicapped. A project report describing the development of the guide, and an extensive annotated bibliography are appended. (CH)
