The Development of Instructional Materials for Special Needs Students.
Smith, Marcia D.; Herschbach, Dennis R.
The paper reviews essential characteristics of instructional materials designed for vocational training of handicapped students, and describes components of the instructional format. Material characteristics (such as flexibility and low reading level) are matched with specific learning characteristics of special needs students. Discussed are the development and use of the Mini Activity Packet (MAP), a small, flexible, independent unit of instruction which includes objectives, information sheets, activities, and review questions. A sample MAP on wrapping a package is provided. (CL)
