Biology for the Blind.
This manual provides advice and guidance to teachers of biology who may have blind children in a class of students with normal sight. The author stresses that in the objectives of high school biology curricula, there is no goal that is beyond the reach of a blind person. The first section provides suggestions for assisting blind students under the following headings: class orientation, laboratory assistants, classroom procedures, tests and equipment, and techniques. The second section is a Teacher's Guide to Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) Version High School Biology for Blind Students. Here the author gives specific suggestions and advice on techniques which enable the blind student to take a fully active role in laboratory investigations. Also listed are supplementary readings in biology (available as recordings), supplementary biology materials, and sources of materials for the blind. (JR)
