Community Living Skills Guide: Reading I.
Kreps, Alice Roelofs
One of twenty course guides in the Community Living Skills Guide for the College for Living series, this document provides guidelines and workbook activities for the course, Reading I. The series of courses for developmentally disabled adults is intended to supplement residential programs and to aid in orienting institutionalized persons to eventual integration into the community. Goals for the course are for the student to gain a basic sight vocabulary and to develop basic reading skills. The ten steps include recognition of written symbols, recognition of sounds connected with symbols; sight words, common nouns; phonics; phonics, vowels; prefixes, suffixes; structural analysis; simple sentences; and context clues. Contents include a pre-post test and outlines for each "step" with objectives, activities, and teacher notes. Three lists of basic and frequently used vocabulary words are also given. Additional activities for this course and Reading II (CE 024 486) are suggested. Other guides in the series and related documents (a volunteer training workshop packet and curriculum guide for fourteen courses) are available separately. (See note.) (YLB)
