Miller, Rozelle J.; And Others
Presented are Parts 1 and 2 of a teaching guide designed for use in the United States Dependent Schools in the European Area. It provides a developmental, task analysis approach for teaching elementary and secondary level mentally retarded and learning disabled students. Included in Part 1 are steps for use of the guide, an explanation of task analysis, a curriculum guide for assessing and developing pre-academic skills (such as gross motor, visual motor, and auditory skills), an ability attainment form for recording a pupil's progress, and a selected annotated bibliography of 39 entries. Part 2 consists of curriculum guides in reading, handwriting and spelling, mathematics, and science. Each curriculum unit lists target abilities (presented in behavioral terms in developmental order), assessment items for each ability, content-development and reinforcement activities for many of the abilities, and supplemental teaching resources and strategies (which are cross referenced to Part 4 in another volume).
