Teaching Objectives for the Itinerant Resource Teacher of Visually Limited Students.
The manual, to be used by the itinerant resource teacher, presents teaching objectives and proficiency levels for the development of communication, living, and social skills of visually handicapped students in kindergarten through grade 12. Communication skills are enumerated (number is indicated in parentheses) for totally blind students in areas of reading and writing braille (15), handwriting (five), math tools (10), and reading raised line maps (nine); and for both the blind and partially sighted in the areas of use and care of typewriters (19), and tape recorders and cassettes (15). Described are enroute objectives intended to develop proficiency of both blind and partially sighted students in the areas of personal grooming habits (18), environmental skills (seven), good housekeeping techniques (five), and travel techniques for blind (17) and for partially sighted (12) students. Such social skills as taking responsibility for classroom duties, and participating in school programs and field trips are delineated for both blind and partially sighted students. Evaluation for both categories of students is said to involve teacher observation and student performance. (MC)
