Children's Knowledge of Time and Money: Effective Instruction for the Mentally Retarded.
Thurlow, Martha L.; Turnure, James E.
Instructional units on time and money were presented to 249 educable and trainable level mentally retarded children. Pretesting showed that Ss had a poorer understanding of time and money concepts than 229 nonretarded controls of the same MA. Significant performance increases from pretest to posttest resulted in the retardates' posttest scores being above control Ss', and in some cases, approaching the level of their CA peers. (Author/CL)
