Individualized Physical Education Curriculum Materials for the Trainable Mentally Handicapped.
Iraci, Joseph
Summarized are the proceedings from a special study institute on the I CAN Project which has developed individualized physical education curriculum materials for trainable retarded students. It is explained that the project cover instruction in acquatic skills, body management, fundamental skills (such as locomotion and object control), and health fitness skills. The diagnostic prescriptive model is recommended, and assessment procedures are reviewed. Discussed are principles of prescribing instruction, including such considerations as instructional grouping and skill sequencing. Techniques for individualizing instruction are suggested, and examples of lessons are provided with information on general directions, physical manipulation, environmental manipulation, modeling and materials. Continuous progress reporting is advocated to record student achievement for parents and students. Reactions of workshop participants to the individual sessions are summarized. (CL)
