Abel, Georgie L.; And Others
Four papers and reports of six demonstrations given at a 5-day institute for 60 teachers of handicapped children on the topic of listening skills in the curriculum are presented. Teachers are said to have been encouraged to make optimum use of technology to improve the educational program. Ursula Hogan discusses the nature of listening as related to reading and classroom performance. Rose-Marie Swallow analyzes listening and auditing in terms of auditory perception components. Dean Tuttle stresses the importance of listening as a means of reading and suggests objectives and activities to develop listening skills. Compressed speech is given as one way to read by listening in the paper by Emerson Foulke. The following institute demonstrations are briefly described, establishment of communication with a nonverbal cerebral palsied boy, the use of videotape with a group of retarded women, recording for the blind, equipment used by the Library of Congress to record books, slides showing the importance of technology to teachers of handicapped children, and a description of the Master Tape Library at the Compressed Speech and Aural Media Center. Appended are articles on the status of speech compressors, the establishment of computer services for the blind in Kentucky, the audio-tutorial method; and a list of sources for appropriate commercial materials.
