Systematic Instruction for Retarded Children: The Illinois Program - Experimental Edition. Part IV: Motor Performance and Recreation Instruction.
Linford, Anthony G.; Jeanrenaud, Claudine Y.
The manual of programed instruction for motor skills and recreational activities for trainable mentally handicapped children includes guidelines on basic recreation movements, rhythm in music, handicrafts, and miscellaneous activities. The guidelines employ principles of behavior change and direct instruction. Detailed programed instruction lists terminal behaviors required from the child when the final task request is mastered. The justification of each skill selected, prerequisite skills, necessary instructional materials and advanced skills are explained. Evaluation criteria for the model lesson plans are provided. Model lesson plans are presented for 18 basic movements that involve one or a combination of the following gross motor movements: balance, object projection, object reception, body projection, and body reception. The rhythm section consists of model lesson plans on four attributes thought to be necessary for musical rhythm readiness: stop and go, loud and soft, fast and slow, and combining dimensions of loudness and fastness. The arts and crafts section includes model lesson plans on modeling with clay, drawing, pasting with glue, painting, and cutting with scissors. The last section concerns 12 miscellaneous activities such as bead threading. (For related programed instruction guidelines, see EC 040 485-6, 040 539-40.) (CB)
