DUB: A Format for Writing Descriptive Literature. Dissemination Document No. 9.
Levine, S. Joseph; Keith, Kitty
Presented is DUB (description, use, and benefits of an idea), a format for special education teachers to use in writing descriptions of self-developed materials and methods; and included are six examples of the format. The DUB format prescribes the inclusion in brief essay form of the following information: descriptive material (structural details, directions for use, or a diagram), specific use (purpose, user, children for whom intended, and use situation), and expected benefits (easier application or more efficient method). Also required are clear statements, few words, author's name and school mailing address. The six examples from the IDEA SERIES, which has been developed as the means of disseminating ideas to teachers by the Michigan State University Regional Instructional Materials Center for Handicapped Children and Youth, are the following: a Braillecard for reading thermoformed embossed braille; a dry manometer for speech clinicians' assessments; the DIGITAL Computer, a child's multiplication system; the SOUNDWHICH, a game for visually handicapped children; the FOOTBALL, a word recognition game for partially sighted children; and a name plate project for junior high school boys.
