Survival Learning Materials.
Wilson, Robert M.; Barnes, Marcia M.
This booklet is designed to provide some starter ideas for teachers to use in developing their own packet of learning materials. The procedures suggested and the examples included are literally starters. "Introduction to Survival Learning Materials" presents some procedures to help teachers get started in developing materials. "Following Directions" presents five examples which can be used to assist in developing activities which may help students understand how to follow directions when reading such materials as toothpaste advertisements, directions on how to prepare frozen foods, directions for assembling do-it-yourself kits, and labels on bottles. "Locating References" presents examples that may help students understand how to use a table of contents, the dictionary, and the library as a reference center. "Interpreting Forms" discusses examples to use with students to help them understand how to fill out subscription forms, interpret applications, and gain a knowledge of credit card applications and map reading. "Obtaining Personal Information" presents suggestions for interpreting safety signs, travel brochures, and sales agreements. (WR)
