Council for Exceptional Children, Arlington, VA.
Eight papers focus upon specific subject programs for educable and trainable mentally retarded (EMR and TMR) students. Three of the papers, concerning driver education and traffic safety education for EMR students, cover driver education guidelines and materials developed in a Michigan state institute involving teachers of EMR and teachers of driver education, Alabama's statewide project for EMR driver and traffic safety education, and a pilot project involving EMR students in a two-part Non-Traditional Driver Education Program emphasizing safety training. Other papers describe in detail the EMR home economics program at Oak Ridge (Tennessee) High School, discuss instructional objectives for work-study programs for EMR elementary through high school students, briefly describe the Northwestern Illinois Athletic Association for Trainable Mentally Handicapped Youth, present a Piagetian approach to arithmetic for the retarded, and examine the team work experience (supervised work in teams in community settings) in work oriented special education programs for retarded persons not able to benefit from the type of vocational training available within the structure of present work study programs on the secondary level.
