Reading Programs and Materials for the Educable Mentally Retarded--A Point of View.
Lazar, Alfred L.
Ten assumptions are suggested as being fundamental to working toward developing effective and realistic reading programs for the educable mentally retarded. They are designed to eliminate many problems about how teachers must learn to effectively use a scientific approach to education. The author focuses upon an operational definition of reading behaviors, based on Gibson's definition; reviews some selected literature on reading for the mentally retarded; and offers the G-SOME System as a type of paradigm for use by the special class teacher as a manager of her reading program. This system is a logic system for use by the teacher as a thinking and creative person; it allows him to plan educational objectives and to make educational decisions. It is comprised of five major sequenced components that require the use of both vertical and horizontal feedback loops. Descriptive figures and references are included. (Author/NH)
