Instructional Materials Thesaurus for Special Education.
Council for Exceptional Children, Reston, VA. Information Center on Exceptional Children.
The thesaurus is intended to clarify and standardize terminology used to index instructional materials for exceptional children within the Special Education Instructional Materials Centers/Regional Media Centers Network. Although most of the approximately 1100 terms are descriptors selected from the thesaurus of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC), non-ERIC descriptors are also included. The thesaurus is presented in three formats: alphabetically (with scope notes and cross references), in rotated index (with key words of single and multi-word descriptors as headings and all descriptors filed under each of their component words), and by category (25 major groupings of similar terms). Proper nouns are not included in the thesaurus. Examples of terms in the thesaurus are anthologies, bulletin boards, clinical diagnosis, divergent thinking, songs, state schools, tactile adaptation and teaching machines. (DB)
