Sequencing Visual Perception Skills. Training Manual.
Langstaff, Anne L., Ed.
The training manual of sequenced visual perception skills offers an assessment guide, explains approximately 20 major types of instructional activities, and describes appropriate instructional materials, illustrated in an associated filmstrip. All activities are organized into four learning steps (recognition, discrimination, recall, and reconstruction); three difficulty levels (concrete, representational, or abstract); and four dimensions (common objects, size, shape, and color). Assessment activities such as naming objects (recognition step at the concrete level of the common object dimension) are provided for the three levels. Each major activity is presented in a grid format so that a subactivity is provided for most steps and dimensions. Activities range from finding particular items in the room at the concrete level to making potato prints at the representational level and using initial letters of grocery items to simulate shopping at the abstract level. Also listed are nine learning center activities and suggestions for use of categories such as birds or clothing at the various levels and dimensions. Addresses of 27 publishers of instructional materials are provided. Instructional objectives are related to commercial and teacher made materials and to the filmstrip. Brief descriptions of approximately 85 instructional materials are included. (DB)
