Developing Instructional Materials for the Handicapped. Guidelines for Preparing Materials Suitable for Wide Distribution.
Belland, John C.; Rothenberg, Sidney
The manual is intended to facilitate the development of instructional materials for handicapped children which are suitable for wide dissemination, and provides guidelines and checklists for planning, producing, and assessing instructional materials. Introductory material includes an evaluation form for the guide, definitions of terms used in the text (such as instructional product), and suggestions for searching the field to locate previously developed materials. The planning stage is seen to involve product clearance, copyrighted material releases, talent releases, and actual material design for instructional and cost effectiveness. The production of instructional materials is discussed in terms of technical considerations (such as print or audiovisual formats), preparing materials for effective use, preparing materials for delivery, and legal considerations such as copyright and royalties. Briefly considered are approaches to assessing the technical aspects and the instructional effectiveness of the materials. Appended are five sources of additional information, addresses and national and regional instructional materials centers, references on copyright aspects, and a sample of print guidelines for manuscript preparation.
