Group Learning Centers. Illustrated for Home Economics. A Strategy for Use in Classes Mainstreaming Disabled Students.
Schultz, Jerelyn B.; Rougvie, Barbara S.
The purpose of this guide is to provide assistance for home economics teachers in gaining insight in working with mildly disabled students as individuals and as members of a mainstreamed class. Preceding the four major parts of this document are descriptions of the following related elements: characteristics of eighth and ninth grade students and provisions for their needs (including typical mild mentally and/or physically disabled learners); adult skills for living; group learning centers and group learning center teaching modules. The objectives, generalizations, and basic concepts of the learning center teaching module presented in this document are outlined in part 1. Two major plans for developing a learning center teaching module on the topic of consumer education are presented in part 2. (The plans are designed to be included in either a foods or clothing unit appropriate for an eighth or ninth grade mainstreamed class.) Each plan includes an overview of the use of learning centers, directions for using learning centers, a guide for learning center activities, and tips for classroom management. Part 3 contains the student materials needed for group learning centers, and part 4 contains the materials needed by the teacher. (A related document, CE 016 746, reports the research and development of this guide.) (BM)
