Toward the Development and Implementation of an Empirically Based Public School Program for Trainable Mentally Retarded and Severely Emotionally Disturbed Students. Part II.
Brown, Lou, Ed.; Sontag, Ed, Ed.
Collected are 31 articles on public school educational activities for the trainable mentally handicapped or the severely emotionally disturbed student in the areas of academic skills, home living skills, and prevocational training. Most of the papers are said to have been written by classroom teachers. Three articles present an overview which includes a discussion of behavioristic task analysis. Fourteen articles consider techniques of teaching academic skills and include skills such as basic spelling, reading a menu, time telling, and arithmetic computation. The teaching of home living skills is examined in eight articles and includes skills such as using a kitchen stove, preparing toast, using a cooking oven, and reading a basic grocery list. The final section, consisting of six papers, on prevocational training considers topics such as the use of fund raising materials to teach prevocational skills to retarded students and the teaching of retarded students to package golf tees in the absence of customary production supports.
