A Teachers' Guide for Exceptional Children and Youth. Parts 3 and 4.
Miller, Rozelle J.; And Others
Presented are Parts 3 and 4 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. In Part 3 specific instructions are provided for developing two major curriculum areas, personal-social development and the world of work, and for writing experience units which span a variety of curriculum areas. 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 (cross referenced to Part 4). Three teaching units (Ways We Move, Safety, and Orientation to the World of Work) and four subunits (Cooking, Pets, Living in Our American Village, and Use and Abuse of Drugs) are given as examples of experience units. Part 4 lists teaching resources (such as basic texts and kits) and teaching strategies (such as experience charts, learning centers, and educational games) for use with curriculum units. (LS)
