Activities for Involvement: In-Service Ideas for Attitudinal Change and Awareness.
Based on a program developed at Augustana College, South Dakota, the booklet--one-fourth of which consists of appendixes--presents activities designed to be used in workshops aimed at creating positive attitudes toward handicapped children among regular classroom teachers. Among the activities are those which simulate the reactions and feelings of handicapped children (including those with motor disability, sensory disability, and learning and emotional disability) when faced with difficult tasks; suggestions for awareness presentations; role playing activities; and testimonials from handicapped individuals who have experienced labeling and resultant isolation. A bibliography of books about handicapped children, written for grades kindergarten through 12, is appended, along with some sample transparencies for use in conjunction with attitude workshops.
